ABOUT THELONIOUS MONKFISH:
We're passionate about ethnic flavors & jazz, and so we’ve branded our unique take on sushi & Asian specialties: Thelonious Monkfish. Nothing warms the palate like an explosion of flavor or the heart like a burst of song! Chef Ginger loves to jam on Asian culinary themes! Her menu reflects both gustatory tradition and a sense of play and innovation.

Live jazz, sushi, and our personal interpretation of Japanese, Thai, Chinese + Vietnamese cuisines are the mediums through which we hope to disperse kindness + loving service. Nestled in Central Square between MIT and Harvard University, we serve Cambridge + Boston's hungry students, professors, professionals, tourists + business people. Thursday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday evenings, Boston's top jazz performers create a cool vibe on our Jazz Baroness Room stage–one of the many ways we aim to enhance your dining experience!

ABOUT KEVIN HARRIS

Harris holds a master’s degree in jazz performance from the New England Conservatory of Music and an undergraduate degree in music education (Morehead State University, KY). At the NEC, he studied with Fred Hersch, Mike Cain, Cecil McBee, George Garzone, and Danilo Perez, and performed with George Russell, Benny Golson and Bob Brookmeyer.

After graduating from the New England Conservatory, Harris worked at further defining himself and his music through partnerships with Boston’s jazz community while seeking further inspiration from historical pillars of improvisation such as Thelonious Monk, Charlie Parker, J.S. Bach and Beethoven. The continuing search for growth and new expression is clearly recognizable in his albums.

When the unmistakable musical influences of Thelonious Monk and Charlie Parker intersect with J.S. Bach, Scott Joplin, and the folkloric rhythms of Cuba, could one possibly conceptualize the celebration that occurs at that interseFred Hersch talks of Harris as one who “plays and writes with flair and real soul”and Downbeat Magazine writes that “Harris’ compositions deal with themes of strength, love, courage, and self awareness. It’s a heavy task he’s set up for himself, and he meets the challenge gracefully.”

Harris performs at renowned national and international venues –Blue Note (NYC, Boston, and Milan), Smalls Jazz Club, Mezzrow Jazz Club, JazzHus Montmartre, Wally’s Jazz Cafe, to name a few–.
His ensemble has also participated at Jazz Festivals in Cuba, Panama, Italy, Denmark, Peru, Israel, and the USA.

And now he plays The Jazz Baroness Room at Thelonious Monkfish!
