Mingus Big Band

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

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

“…Mingus is always probing. He speaks in his music of the same fundamental problems, ambiguities, satisfactions, and frustrations that he talks about when he’s telling you about his own life…Always his music is intensely, thrustingly palpable—a persistent personal witnessing, questioning, exulting, despair­ing, raging, and sometimes laughing.” (Nat Hentoff, from liner notes to The Art of Charles Mingus: The Atlantic Years, Atlantic LP 2–302)
