Our acclaimed “Mingus Monday” residency continues in April with two explosive sets by the Grammy Award–winning Mingus Big Band, playing the music of legendary bassist, composer and bandleader Charles Mingus (1922–1979). After receiving multiple GRAMMY Award nominations for several previ­ous releases, finally the MBB was awarded the coveted trophy for “Best Large Jazz Ensemble Album” for its 2011 CD Live at Jazz Standard. “The Mingus Big Band – musician for musician – is one of the most spir­ited and technically gifted bands in the country!” (Seattle Examiner)
