Pianist and singer Johnny O’Neal leads his impressive quintet in celebration of the birthday and legacy of Thelonious Sphere Monk. Since returning to New York in 2010, Johnny O’Neal has cemented his long-promised star status at the age of 60. His most vivid recording to date, In the Moment, fully capturing the elegant pianism and emotionally gripping voice that have made him such a beloved fixture on the NYC jazz scene ever since his unparalleled comeback. O’Neal draws on an encyclopedic musical knowledge and an always changing book of hundreds of songs that range from blues to straight-ahead to post-bop to pop tunes to ballads.
