T.S. Monk, son of iconic pianist and composer Thelonious Monk, founder of the Thelonious Monk Institute of Jazz and more.

Drummer Louis Hayes has been a catalyst for energetic, unrelenting swing for over 50 years. Whether as a band leader or sideman Hayes' history is an encyclopedia of straight ahead post-bop modern jazz.

For the last twenty-plus years, Louis has led or co-led some of the most uncompromisingly swinging groups in all of jazz. Each unit has displayed tight-knit harmonic cohesion and hard-driving consistency as part of its signature.

With so much activity in his past, Louis could easily rest comfortably on his laurels. But being a forward thinker and doer, Hayes operates "in the present!" His recent groups boasts some of the cream of jazz' recent crop. Saxophonist Javon Jackson and Abraham Burton, young trumpet titan Riley Mullins and other stellar players are among current members of the Louis Hayes Quintet. Louis Hayes posses an embarrassment of riches. His story, still being told, contains a glorious past, a vibrant present and an ever promising future.
