Thelonious Dub is the Monday Night house band for the West Lounge, Penthouse of the Hotel Angeleno, Los Angeles

Thelonious Dub is a Los Angeles band that began by playing reggae versions of Thelonious Monk tunes. Gaining in popularity, the quartet’s original compositions featured heavily with their audience and is captured in their 2010 second release “Master Plan B.”

Formed in 2007, Guitarist Joe Bartone was the leader of the Boston band - Fat Buddah before coming to Los Angeles and meeting Mandorico’s drummer Sean Rainey. Soon after they joined up with tenor player Space Kyle and Brandon Schmidt, upright bassist for Chord Four. Together they cultivated a chemistry of sound; nurturing ideas to flow freely among them.

Master Plan B was written produced by Joe Bartone and recorded by Paul Du Gre’ (L7, Weezer, Bill Frisell, Leo Kottke). TDub incorporates synths, delays, deep bass and hypnotic rhythms in their jazz music. Paul Du’ Gre also engineered their first, self-titled release - a collection of jazz standards interpreted as reggae instrumentals.
