Mike Cornette: Pianist and Composer John Beasley

On the “Other Nine to Five,” Mike Cornette’s guest will be pianist, composer and arranger John Beasley whose two tributes to the music of Thelonious Monk have garnered four Grammy nominations.  John will be performing music from his MONK’estra releases on Monday, February 22, at USF. Plus, more songs from our focus artist of the week, drummer Joe Farnsworth.   Then later, at midnight, it’s our 12 O’clock-tail: another version of Billy Strayhorn’s classic composition “Lush Life.” [Photo: http://bit.ly/2ESQr2o]
