Don’t miss out on the New Year’s Eve Gala with Mingus Big Band at Jazz Standard!
Jazz Standard welcomes 2013 with a roof-raising gala performance by the Mingus Big Band in the Grammy Award–winning group’s first New Year’s Eve appearance since 12/31/2008. Critics have been raving about the Mingus Big Band ever since it launched in 1991 under the direction of Sue Mingus. “The Mingus Big Band, musician for musician, is one of the most spirited and technically gifted bands in the country,” said the Seattle Examiner, while the New York Daily News hailed “an astonishingly telepathic ensemble.” The Los Angeles Times described “a spirited blend of the lush harmonies and boisterous blues sections, interwoven ensemble passages and sudden tempo shifts that made the late bassist Charles Mingus one of the most challenging and celebrated artists in jazz.” Jazz Standard with the Mingus Big Band is the place to be on New Year’s Eve 2012!
