Monk Americana

Wanted to share a piece I wrote a while back called “Monk Americana.” Compositionally it’s sort of an Aaron Copland fanfare mutated by Thelonious Monk. I got a chance to record it solo a few years ago, which you can hear below. The score is underneath the music player. The above photo of the abandoned Jumbo Jet was taken at the Evergreen Aviation & Space Museum in McMinnville, Oregon. These two things are completely unrelated.
