Mingus Big Band

Mingus Big Band

In tribute to the late great bassist, composer and bandleader Charles Mingus (1922–1979), our acclaimed “Mingus Mondays” residency continues tonight with two blazing sets by the GRAMMY Award-winning Mingus Big Band. “For sheer range of expression, his work has few equals in postwar American music: furious and tender, joyous and melancholy, grave and mischievous, ecstatic and introspective. It moves from the rapture of the church to the euphoria of the ballroom, from accusation to seduction, from a whis­per to a growl, often by way of startling jump cuts and sudden changes in tempo.” (Adam Shatz, “An Argument With Instruments: On Charles Mingus" - The Nation, 9.17.2013)
