Pregones Theater Presents: Danny Rivera + Konrad Adderley's MONKTANGO

  • Pregones Theater 575 Walton Ave (map)

International recording star Danny Rivera joins bassist Konrad Adderley’s musical quintet and four dancers in a one-night fusion tribute to jazz legend Thelonious Monk and Argentine tango!

Considered one of the giants of American music, jazz pianist and composer Thelonious Sphere Monk had a unique improvisational style full of dissonances and angular melodic twists, combined with a highly percussive attack, and dramatic use of silences and hesitations. It is in this signature style that bassist Konrad Adderley finds a common thread with the passionate structure of Argentine Tango.

Add the spectacularly warm voice of the great Danny Rivera and you have the makings of a unique and truly memorable night of jazz/tango music.

Special Meet The Artist open rehearsal and dialogue: Friday March 7 @ 1pm.
