I Am Three Brings Together Mingus Tribute Bands

June 7 will bring an opportunity for Charles Mingus fans to experience all three of the Mingus repertory ensembles in a new CD entitled I Am Three.

The three ensembles include The Mingus Big Band, which recently completed fourteen years at New York’s Fez Under the Time Cafe and now resides at the Iridium; The Mingus Orchestra, which started a permanent Thursday night gig at Joe’s Pub in Manhattan; and The Mingus Dynasty, a touring quintet/septet that formed after Mingus’ death and disbanded in 1991.
