Tenor saxophonist Melissa Aldana was born in Santiago, Chile, and in 2013, she became the first female instrumentalist and the first South American ever to win the Thelonious Monk Competition.

Pianist Christian Sands is a five-time Grammy® nominee. As a child in New Haven, Connecticut, he began music classes at age four, started playing professionally at the age of 10, and received his Bachelor of Arts and master’s degree from the Manhattan School of Music.

Grammy-nominated drummer and vocalist Jamison Ross won the Thelonious Monk International Jazz Competition in 2012.

Bassist Yasushi Nakamura is one of the most commanding voices on bass today. Born in Tokyo, Nakamura moved to Seattle, Washington, eventually receiving his bachelors in jazz performance from Berklee College of Music, and an artist diploma from the Juilliard School.
