In addition to exploring recording opportunities, Kevin Eubanks plans to continue working at the Thelonius Monk Institute.
Upon reading the news that he was appointed Artistic Director of the Institute, it appears that Kevin has found a new direction to channel his love and passion for music by passing along his skills and experience to a new generation of musicians. How wonderful is that?
Last evening, Kevin showcased an excellent young musician he discovered at the Institute, 17-year-old Javon Harvey, on The Tonight Show. He is excellent and I hope his appearance on the Tonight Show will foster more opportunities by which rising young artists can be discovered.
