Mingus Big Band

  • Jazz Standard 116 East 27th Street New York, NY, 10016 United States (map)

Shows at 7:30pm & 9:30pm.

“Some people describe the Mingus Big Band as the most joyous experience in jazz. Others call it the most profound. Seeing the band last night at Ronnie Scott’s was a reminder of why it’s both at once. At the root of the band’s appeal is the genius of the man Charles Mingus, who died in 1979. The Mingus Big Band exists to keep alive the heritage of this great bass player and composer, who made every piece into an adventure.” (Ivan Hewett - The Telegraph)
