Imagine Weather Report or the or mid 60's Miles Davis melding with The Meters, Dollar Brand and the
Mahavishnu Orchestra. Monkeyworks is a chemical reaction of seven individuals with a common vision, melding Jazz, Rock, African, Cajun, Middle Eastern, and Ambient Music. The music travels somewhere way out there but remains accessible.

The present incarnation of the group has been together since November 1997, although the early roots of Monkeyworks trace back to 1988. During 1998-99, Monkeyworks played at many varied venues and festivals in the New York/New Jersey area. Monkeyworks now has its first self-produced CD.
