Ugly Beauty

With great love and admiration, Ugly Beauty takes the music of our hero, Thelonious Monk, and puts it thru a meat grinder.  Ugly Beauty was formed in 2009 to do naughty things with Monk’s music. Tunes of his that you know (or don’t) are twisted, sometimes to the point of not recognizing them.  Ever need some punk Monk?  Give this a listen.  Tired of “standard jazz” repertoire?  Here we are for you.
Ugly Beauty is:
Andrew Stern— guitar
Jef Charland— bass, VCR
Jared Seabrook— drums
