Double Monk
Steve Million and Jeremy Kahn, like most jazz pianists, share a fascination with the music of Thelonious Monk. They have dared to conceive a performance project based on this fascination in which they perform Monk's music on two pianos. At times this duo is joined by the modern dancer Ariane Dolan who has choreographed dances to their musical arrangements. The duo picks many tunes that the master himself rarely performed including: Who Knows, Criss Cross, Hornin In, and Oska T, to name a few. They bring to each performance over thirty years of jazz piano playing experience, a wink to the audience and a nod to Monk himself.

“...it didn't take long to discern the distinctions between Million's pianism and Kahn's, particularly in solos. In essence, Million produced a sharper-edged tone and more angular turns of phrase, Kahn a rounded timbre and silvery touch. Put the two together, and you have a deeply satisfying sound and practically relentless musical action.” - Howard Reich
