Frank Carlberg has explored the music of Thelonious Sphere Monk in many contexts: as a seasoned and highly acclaimed pianist, noted for his work in duo, trio and other small groups, but also as leader and orchestrator of an adventurous large ensemble. His 2017 release Monk Dreams, Hallucinations and Nightmares was big-band Monk in all it's glory, rated five stars in DownBeat and hailed as "stunning and original" by The Buffalo News. Carlberg played piano on the earlier date, which had J.C. Sanford conducting. But on the new Elegy for Thelonious, Carlberg takes up the baton and does not play, leaving that to the brilliant Leo Genovese (effortlessly at home in mainstream and avant-garde jazz settings)."Thelonious Monk remains as vital and relevant as ever," says Carlberg, "and we are very happy to share this offering inspired by the Master and created through our personal prism.
