Coverage in The New Yorker and New York Magazine

The Mingus Big Band was recently featured in both The New Yorker and New York Magazine!

New York Magazine raved about the group’s residency at the Jazz Standard, saying:Sue Mingus’ popular 14-piece act pays tribute to iconic jazz bassist and bandleader Charles Mingus. The tight, technically adept band has been at it for over ten years—they had a long run at the Fez Under Time Cafe until it closed in 2004—and their dedication has paid off: Their weekly live shows constantly draw rapt, delighted crowds, and three of their seven albums have earned Grammy nominations.

The New Yorker wrote in its ‘Goings on About Town’ section about the Mingus Big Band’s premiering of “Noonlight,” a recently-discovered Mingus composition. Read the listing below!
