18-02-2019 12:00:00 18-02-2019 12:00:00 America/New_York Mingus Orchestra: Celebrating 10 Years At Jazz Standard | Time varies A rare appearance by the Mingus Orchestra, with its singular blend of "jazz" and "non–jazz" instruments brought to bear on some of maestro Mingus' most inventive compositions. Expect the unexpected from this unique aggregation, including such rare jewels as "Noon Night," "Taurus in the Arena of Life," and "Half Mast Inhibition." "The lean, sharp ten–piece band features such uncommon instrumentation as a bassoon and a French horn, but this isn't staid cham­ber jazz. When the spirit of the late great one hits them, they steam." (The New Yorker) http://www.cityguideny.com/eventinfo.cfm?id=342989 Jazz Standard Jazz Standard
