Boundless Spontaneity: Jazz Responses to Figurative Traditions W/ Mild Monk

Sun, Jun 12

Free, with Museum Admission / San José Museum of Art

Mild Monk is the brainchild of Henry Stein, a San Jose Asian-American songwriter & producer. After picking up a guitar in 2016, Henry started writing songs on his phone by experimenting with a variety of musical inspirations. His music ranges from alternative pop and indie rock to lofi/instrumental hip-hop. After releasing his debut album Love (2018), Henry moved to San Jose and released records including Orbit (2018) and Sunsmile (2020) featuring a talented crew of Bay Area friends. Whether it be creating a lush sonic landscape with swirling instrumentals or telling a story through lyrics, Stein has created a universe within Mild Monk that is constantly expanding and rediscovering itself.

Mild Monk was the recipient of a 2021 Jazz Aid Fund grant for the creation of new work. The result was his song "Ameagari."
