Mingus Big Band

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

The Mingus Big Band “is a wonder and an anomaly,” wrote Victor Schermer at AllAbout¬ “The band has taken a musical legacy and transformed it into a creative force that generates a contemporary originality and vitality all its own. They are an important part of the current jazz scene and a constant re-minder that jazz—big band jazz, at that—is not merely entertainment but a powerful art form and means of expression.”
