A tribute to the music of Thelonious Monk, one of the key influences in Ronan Guilfoyle’s musical career – celebrating 100 years since the birth of the great jazz pianist.
Just before going on stage, Thelonious Monk would often deliver this particular piece of advice to his band: ‘Don’t forget, always know.’ This and other Monk sayings were captured by band member Steve Lacy – a handwritten document scrawled with the typically gnomic, yet brilliant things Monk would say to the band. Guilfoyle based this suite of music on this document, with each piece based on one of Monk’s infamous sayings. As Monk said, ‘You’ve got to dig it, to dig it – you dig?’
