The Magruder Monktet

Originally founded by arranger/composer/saxophonist John Magruder in the early eighties, and reenergized by his wife and collaborator Joy Magruder, the Monktet plays the music of Thelonius Monk, as arranged by John Magruder and others, as well as Magruder’s original compositions. The Monktet has played in leading Southern California jazz clubs including the Jazz Bakery,  Spazio and Catalina Jazz Club along with performances and clinics for universities and music programs.

The Monktet’s second album “JOY BOP!”, with fingers crossed, will be released in March. Keep your eyes and ears open!
