Miles Okazaki

WORK

USA

Tuesday 4 June, 7:00pm
The Jazzlab

In a ‘monumental statement of devotion’ (The New York Times), guitarist Miles Okazaki recorded Work – an album recording, for the first time, the entire Thelonious Monk songbook on a solo instrument.

Consisting of all 70 known Monk compositions, Work has wowed critics and jazz lovers since its 2018 release and has been hailed as ‘heroic’, ‘jaw-dropping’ and a ‘dazzling invention’.

Okazaki will play 50 minutes of material from Work in a solo performance at the Jazzlab for MIJF.
