“…an inexhaustibly creative drummer…” - The New York Times

Clarence Penn is the leader of multiple bands, a composer, a prolific producer, and an educator. Since he arrived in New York City in 1991, Penn has become a fixture in the jazz capital, performing with a staggering array of A-list artists, including Ellis and Wynton Marsalis, Betty Carter, Stanley Clarke, Steps Ahead, and Makoto Ozone. His explorations in a broad spectrum of jazz expression have led to an impressive discography of several hundred studio albums, including the GRAMMY® Award-winning 34th and Lex by Randy Brecker, as well as Concert in the Garden and Sky Blue by Maria Schneider. Get ready for an evening of explosive, yet nuanced jazz with Penn and his quartet in their performance of "Monk, the Lost Files," a fresh re-imagining of the music of Thelonious Monk.
