Among their many musical influences & inspirational artists, they choose 2 honorable ones: Thelonious Monk and the Beatles. Their music started to leave it’s mark 60 – 70 years ago in the last century but their impact is still going on, having deeply influenced all generations following those times.
The Beatles unlocked the field of Pop/Rock music and Beyond and Thelonious Monk the field of Jazz and beyond. These artists are innovators who opened for us opportunities to break barriers and think out of the box.
The message of their music to the world was basically ‘be yourself, take risks and do your own thing’. Both have such a strong connection to melody and harmony but in their different ways. Their music is here to stay forever.
The program may be called ‘Monk meets the Beatles’ but it consists also of tunes composed by us, who have been influenced by them in different ways.
All in all, that is a homage to the Beatles and Thelonious Monk combined with some of our own music.
The result is an exciting palette of music which marked an entire era and future generations. The trio members add their musical & cultural background influences which adds to the uniqueness of this collaboration.
