The legacy of mercurial bassist, composer, mystic and all around multi-hyphenate Charles Mingus lives on at the Jazz Standard, where the 14-piece Mingus Big Band, led by his widow, Sue, has maintained a perennial Monday night residency. Like Sun Ra, Mingus himself lives on, too; this year, he celebrates the 35th anniversary of his death with the unveiling of a newly discovered composition, "Noonlight," which had been collecting dust in Canadian professor Andrew Homzy's house for the past 30 years until he unearthed it, reconstructed it, and recently premiered it in New York. It's the jazz equivalent of a lost Mozart.
