From the WBGO blog: April 21, 2011. Posted by Becca Pulliam:
Presidents Day was the climax of a big week for the legacy of Charles Mingus and those who love it. First, after many nominations, the Mingus Big Band won the Best Large Ensemble Grammy for the CD of their New Year’s Eve show, originally broadcast on Toast of the Nation! Five days later, students by the band-ful came to New York for the third national  Charles Mingus High School Competition, founded by Sue Mingus, at Manhattan School of Music. (You can see the winners here.) As part of the weekend, on Friday night, I went to Jazz Standard to see the Grammy-winning Mingus Big Band, as bassist Boris Kozlov announced them. The club was full of teenagers and the spirit in the room was joy. The next night, the Mingus Orchestra gave a concert at St. Bart’s Church on Park Avenue & 50th St., an un-amplified concert in which the high cathedral ceiling and smooth, colorful stone walls and floor all became part of the music. You can hear this concert on WBGO and Michael Bourne hosts the special broadcast for Mingus’s birthday, Friday, April 22 at 8pm.

We are happy to announce that NPR “Jazz Set” will broadcast Mingus Orchestra at St. Bart’s Church February 2012. Look for video clips coming soon, too!

Medfield Press: Medfield High Jazz Band selected for prestigious competition
Wed, Feb. 9 2011
“It’s going to be a huge experience,” said Medfield junior Luke Rosenfeld, who plays piano in the jazz band. “Playing with the Mingus Big Band is a once-in-a-lifetime experience. It’s not something you can just do every day.”…“The seniors were especially overjoyed because it’s their last year and some of them had been selected as part of the Essentially Ellington [high school jazz band] competition when they were freshmen,” he said. “The Mingus competition is very similar…and they got to play with [trumpeter] Wynton Marsalis and other phenomenal artists. We’ve been practicing Charles Mingus’s music for a few months now; we are very excited.”During the master clinics, a member of the Mingus Big Band will work individually with students.“Being taught by them is going to be huge,” said Rosenfeld, who has been playing piano for 10 years….“The students have really grown to love Mingus’s music and have become passionate about it,” said Olsen. “It’s such a unique experience for these students to hang out and interact with these famous musicians in New York City and get to meet other inspired high-level musicians from around the country.”
Dakota Combo Selected for Charles Mingus High School Competition
Tue, Feb. 1 2011
Adam Linz, Combo director and a staunch advocate for the music of Charles Mingus, couldn’t be happier. “The Mingus High School Competition is one of the most high profile jazz gatherings in the world…The music of Mingus somehow taps into the youth of America. I think it is the emphasis on energy and the band concept that draw young people to his music. It requires that you step up and be heard and not hide in a section. It also promotes individuality among the people that tackle it. The meek need not apply. So we are very excited to go to NYC and meet other young people from around the country that share our love for this man and his music! We are also excited to show everyone our commitment to Mingus in the lives of young people.” Notes MacPhail President/Chief Operating Officer Paul Babcock, “This is a terrific opportunity for the students in the Dakota Combo. They have great passion and enthusiasm for playing jazz and especially have developed a great love for playing the music of Charles Mingus. It’s an honor have the Dakota Combo perform at the Mingus competition and be selected among the excellent high school jazz groups from across the country.””I’m absolutely thrilled,” said saxophonist Danny Hupp. “To be thrown into an environment where everyone has the same passion as you is exciting, but also somewhat terrifying. I honestly cannot wait.”Adds pianist Quentin Tschofen, “I’m really looking forward to the competition and workshops. What’s particularly exciting is the opportunity to play jazz in New York among a lot of people who really love the art form…And now we need to rehearse!”

Mingus NEA concerts at MacPhail Center for Music
Wed, Nov. 24 2010
“Three NEA grants (American Masterpieces) for chamber music in 2010-2011 support projects devoted to the works of Charles Mingus, including the four-concert series at the MacPhail Center for Music. Presented as part of its annual Jazz Thursdays program, “Meditations and Revelations” is the brainchild of bassist/MacPhail jazz coordinator Adam Linz, a longtime devotee of the “one-man avant garde,” to quote John McDonough in his article about the MacPhail grant in this month’s issue of Chamber Music magazine. In explaining the rationale for presenting the music of Mingus live, Linz told McDonough, “It’s the ability to find spontaneity in music that’s fifty years old [and to] take it somewhere it hasn’t been. That’s the spirit of Mingus… You have a band that rehearses without charts and adds to the performance…we want to keep that spirit that it may all fall apart….”article and photos by Andrea Canter

Through Nov. 16View Full Image
Pedro CostaJeanne Balibar in Pedro Costa’s ‘Ne change rien.’
MOVIE2A rock star to cinematic aesthetes, Pedro Costa is more punk than Dutch provocateur Lars von Trier. With seemingly no more than a digital camera, some natural light and a subject (for instance, the Lisbon slum and its loquacious denizens in his celebrated Fontainhas Trilogy) the Portuguese filmmaker achieves something fascinating, hypnotic and mysterious—and, in its fearless chiaroscuro, an austere yet rapturous beauty. For two weeks, Mr. Costa will present his most recent film, “Ne change rein,” a performance documentary starring French actress and singer Jeanne Balibar, alongside some of his favorite movies. He’s included some elusive choices, such as Jean Eustache’s obscured documentary debut “Numero Zero,” Jean-Luc Godard’s comic “Keep Your Right Up,” Thomas Reichman’s raw and bitter “Mingus: Charlie Mingus 1968.” Mr. Costa will discuss his films Friday evening, and will introduce various screenings throughout the series.

Also being honored at the JJA Awards is Sue Mingus, the widow of the late bassist-composer, who has seen to it that her husband’s music is more widely performed now than it was during the jazz iconoclast’s lifetime. (Even the Django Reinhardt-inspired Hot Club of Detroit is playing “Nostalgia in Times Square” on their new album, “It’s About That Time.”) “Mingus Monday” has become a tradition at Jazz Standard…. The 14-piece big band, which features saxophonists Scott Robinson and Wayne Escoffery, is also represented by its 10th album, “Live at Jazz Standard,” and demonstrates that, alongside Ellington and Monk, there’s no composer more worthy than Mingus of being a one-man franchise.
