New Year's Eve with The Mingus Big Band

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

Shows at 7:30pm & 10:30pm:

The last time the Mingus Big Band assembled on our stage for New Years Eve, it resulted in a GRAMMY award. This time, who knows what will happen in the joyous, swinging, raucous music of the master, Charles Mingus? Critics have been raving about this unit ever since it launched in 1991 under the direction of Sue Mingus. The New York Daily News hailed “an astonishingly tele­pathic ensemble,” while the Los Angeles Times described “a spirited blend of the lush harmonies and boister­ous blues sections, interwoven ensemble passages and sudden tempo shifts that made the late bassist Charles Mingus one of the most challenging and celebrated artists in jazz.” Jazz Standard with the Mingus Big Band is the place to be on 12/31/2015!
