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

Our long–running “Mingus Monday” residency continues tonight with two dynamic sets by the GRAMMY Award–winning Mingus Big Band. “His music aimed always at the further extension of the horizons of jazz and sometimes experimented with atonality and with a wide range of dissonant effects. Some elements offer a sharp and piquant contrast, with clearly defined folk music roots and a savage, shouting, blues–derived intensity. Not for complacent ears, Mingus’ music is the prototype of a new and vital generation of the 1960s just as Charlie Parker and Dizzy Gillespie were of the 1940s.” (Leonard Feather, The New Encyclopedia Of Jazz)
