About

Grammy-winning Mingus Big Band commemorates the centennial of legendary composer, bassist, and bandleader Charles Mingus (1922–1979) with a performance blending hard bop, Afro-Latin soul, and deeply felt blues. Come groove and see why he’s still one of the most iconic musicians of all time. Also appearing as a special guest is Charles McPherson.
