A Jazz Legend Carries on his Father’s Legacy in Geneva

The Geneva Music Festival presents a wide range of music and various venues in and around Geneva. We hear from jazz legend, drummer T.S. Monk, who will be performing with his sextet at the Smith Opera house. The son of Thelonious Monk, he tells the amazing story of how he first approached his father about wanting to become a drummer — and what happened next.
