The Mingus Big Band performs at the Ottawa Jazz Festival

 

 

 

At the end of June, the Mingus Big Band traveled to Ottawa, Ontario, to perform in the Ottawa International Jazz Festival.

 

 

 

 

 

 

“The Mingus Big Band picked up the torch. Dedicated to the memory of the iconoclastic bassist and band leader who died in 1979, this 14-piece band performed Moanin’ and Goodbye Pork Pie Hat before deadline. Man, this is fierce stuff, that seems to defy almost every convention of what makes music musical. Sweet band arrangements and Charlie Mingus’ astral sound made for a gorgeous listen.”
