Check out these reviews of the Mingus Big Band’s performance at Ronnie Scott’s in London, England!
The Telegraph described the ensemble as an “unstoppable band” displaying a “irresistible, seductive music charm”.
“Naturally, the most explicitly jazzy, bluesy and gospelly sounds came from the Mingus band.”
