Views and Brews Remix: Thelonious Monk and The Art of Hesitation
Listen to KUT’s Views and Brews Remix–a one hour highlight show of our evening on Thelonious Monk featuring…
Thelonious Monk is an original and unique voice in the shaping and the sound of American music. Both his compositions and his inimitable piano playing continue to confound and resound decades after their inception, bringing us to ask questions — how far can one go when listening to your own muse? Does the artist have a responsibility to instruct while creating? Can art just be enjoyed or does it have to vex to be effective? When looking to swing, how important is rhythm? What is said in the silences? These are the questions we set out to explore during what proved to be an inspirational night of ideas and music at the Cactus Cafe.
KUT’s Views and Brews is a free space where we invite the community in to explore a wide range of subjects and ideas. Our goal is to engage with the community to share thoughts, inspire new perspectives, and develop compelling content while involving Austin in the discussion.
