Ryan Driver/Tania Gill/Ashley Urquhart - Monk Musical Chairs [excerpt]

Another conceptual coup at Nilan Perera's SynapticCircusSundays residency saw three noteworthy local pianists taking turns on selections from the Monk songbook. The catch here was that the songs were presented continuously — one pianist would start a song, then slide over midway through as the next joined them for a four-handed middle section before the new pianist would complete the piece and begin another.

[SynapticCircusSundays will be back at The Tranzac on Sunday, March 8th.]
