T.S. Monk

T.S. Monk - drummer, bandleader, composer, and vocalist was drawn to the drums before the age of ten. His destiny was sealed when Max Roach, with whom he studied, gave him his first drum set. After earning a reputation in school as a rabble-rouser (and graduating), the young Monk joined his father's trio and toured with his dad until the elder Monk's retirment in 1975. T. S. then launched into the music that had captivated him and his generation, R&B. He first toured with a group called Natural Essence and afterward, along with his sister Barbara, formed his own band. He then proceeded to have hits on two recordings, House Of Music and More Of The Good Life , where T.S. played drums, arranged, and sang.
