Mingus Big Band: Celebrating 10 Years at Jazz Standard
Due to the coronavirus, please call to ensure this event is still happening before you leave home.
"His music aimed always at the further extension of the horizons of jazz and sometimes experimented with atonality and with a wide range of dissonant effects. Some elements offer a sharp and piquant contrast, with clearly defined folk music roots and a savage, shouting, blues–derived intensity. Not for complacent ears, Mingus' music is the prototype of a new and vital generation of the 1960s just as Charlie Parker and Dizzy Gillespie were of the 1940s." (Leonard Feather, The New Encyclopedia Of Jazz)
