Dawn Ho Quartet presents Monk And Miles

01st March. 730-930pm

Paris Cat Jazz Club. Melbourne.


Together with some of Melbourne’s most beloved jazz musicians, Dawn will perform works inspired and written by two great jazz legends, Thelonious Monk and Miles Davis. 


Fascinated by the unorthodox and quirky approach of Monk as well as the relaxed, melodic and harmonic style of Miles, Dawn explores two contrasting energies of jazz from the eras of (hot) bebop in the 1930’s and 40’s to that of cool jazz and modal jazz from the 1950’s.


Drums - Ben Charnley

Bass -  Jordan Tarento

Piano - Mina Yu
