Teri and John recorded and co-produced their first CD, Misterioso, with Kenny Burrell on guitar and Jack DeJohnette on drums. The title song, Misterioso, is one of Monk’s most loved compositions, and has been changed to Listen To Your Soul, as a result of the Thelonious Monk family giving Teri permission to record her own lyrics to this jazz master’s tune, an uncommon privilege.
“John and I are looking forward to working with these gifted musicians who make up the MELODIOUS THUNK ENSEMBLE, whose very special talents will combine to reinvent tradition while rising to the occasion of Monk’s extraordinary compositions with original interpretations.” Teri Roiger
