The Junius Courtney Big Band featuring Zoe Ellis brings their new show "Monk Meets Junius" to the best jazz club around. Returning for year five of their twice-yearly Yoshi's appearances, the Junius Courtney Big Band packs the house and raises the roof. The fabulous Zoe Ellis swings out front on vocals. Sophisticated favorites from the band’s book combine with Monk’s big band charts. This all promises to bring the musical excitement to a boil.
Thelonious Monk was one quirky genius who left us a catalog and legacy of truth, beauty and humor. Take a walk on the creative side when "Monk Meets Junius." And note: the Monk runs deep - better get your tickets soon!
