Orbit was formed in January of 2017 by a group of aspiring young music students at the University of Manitoba Jazz program, they came together with the common goal of rethinking Monk’s compositions, while embodying the attitude and spirit of Monk and his bandmates. Jared Beckstead-Craan (double bass), Eamon Sheil (alto saxophone), Artur Kivilaht (guitar) and Kevin Waters (drums) aim to play Monk’s compositions as well as original material inspired by Monk with the same rhythmic character that made his music so unique and compelling. They aspire to pay tribute to the great composer while allowing their individual personalities as musicians and composers to come through.
