Son of the famed Jazz musician Thelonious Monk. Following in his father's footsteps, T.S. became a musician, however, instead of being a pianist he chose to be a drummer. He released his first major album, Monk on Monk, in 1997 which featured T.S. playing Thelonious' tunes. T.S. then released a fusion album in 1999 titled Cross Talk.

Time will tell if he ever lives up to his father's legacy.
