I, Thelonious © Seth E. Washington
A Music Master Class Given By and About Thelonious Sphere Monk Created, Written and Performed by Seth E. Washington

The essence of a one - man performance re-introducing Jazz master Thelonious Monk as he gives an entertaining and enlighting TED style seminar to a present day audience about music, life and being 100, featuring also a DJ and saxophonist.

Along the way, the genius Monk sheds a bit of light on his choices, abilities, as well as, his preferences while providing some subtle insights about the mysteries surrounding his music, himself, in addition to his musings on creativity and other artists of the past, present and the possible.

Yet, will he play? Using the art of storytelling and poetry, along with recorded and live music Thelonious Monk will be portrayed by Spoken Word Artist, Seth Eric Washington.
