As far as the actual programthe songs to be performedSung kept that relatively close: "I was going to say, 'We're going to play some Monk classics,' but then again, virtually everything he wrote has become a jazz classic! From the haunting lyricism of 'Ugly Beauty' to the rhythmic exuberance of 'In Walked Bud,' I selected songs that particularly resonate with me. I will also include some original works that are inspired by my love of Monk."
For those who are able to attend one of (or all three) the nights of the Monk Festival at Dizzy's, Sung wrote that she is aiming "To create something beautiful, personal, and realmusical experiences that share with every participating artist and listener my love for Monk and his music, and the delight and joy of being a jazz musician."
