Mingus Big Band

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

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

Our acclaimed “Mingus Monday” residency continues to revive and reinvent the music of the legendary bassist, composer and bandleader Charles Mingus (1922–1979). “Gospel fervor, flamenco tinges, fog–bound moodiness, bebop complexity, the joy and despair of the blues, Schoenbergian atonality, were all bound together by Mingus. A driven skipper, sometimes more crazed than Ahab, he conducted from the bridge, shouting praise, condemnation, and love.” – Doug Ramsey in Jazz Masters: Reflections on the Music & Some of Its Makers (1989, University of Arkansas Press)
