Thelonious Monk is a 10-10 birthday celebrant; Thelonious was a sharp dresser
and loved his
hats - in his honor, we'll have a "Thelonious Monk Hat Contest".
Anyone can enter, prizes will be Monk-related (music, video, biography) and of
insignificant monetary value. Ballots will be cast around 7:30pm. In addition,
we'll all be treated to the mellow tones of bay area saxophonist
Charles Unger.

Daniel Pearl is a 10-10 birthday celebrant; in honor of Daniel Pearl World Music
Days, "Bella Buenafe" will start our celebration by offering up an uplifting
rythmic prayer for peace with drums, percussion and chant. Other 10-10
birthday celebrants are
Johnny Green (songwriter, arranger, conductor) and
Oscar Brown, Jr. (singer, songwriter, civil rights activist, actor). Linda Kosut will
be performing music from both of these composers.

Lynne Billig (hey!! that's ME!) is a 10-10 birthday celebrant; part of the program
will be about some of her (I mean, my) favorite songs and will feature one of
her/my favorite people:
Jesse Foster. I'll be recognizing other 10-10 birthday
celebrants during the evening and expect that there will be other special musical

Come for the party! Stay for the Jazz Jam!!
An instrumental jazz jam hosted by Jan van Buyten will follow from 10pm-1am.
