The Kennedy Center presents the winner of the 2010 Thelonious Monk International Jazz Bass Competition, Ben Williams, as part of an ongoing partnership with the Thelonious Monk Institute of Jazz. After winning the Monk Competition and wowing audiences in performances with Stefon Harris's hip hop–influenced band Blackout, D.C. native and Duke Ellington School of Music graduate Ben Williams has rapidly attracted new levels of attention. He now leads his own ensemble in a unique musical exploration anchored by his soul-pounding rhythmic attacks.
