Blues & Roots Ensemble | play the music of Charles Mingus
Wed 11 January 2017, 19:00 – 22:00 GMT
The Blues & Roots Ensemble is a band that will be performing arrangements of the music of Charles Mingus, a double bass player who was hugely influential in shaping American jazz and politics during the 50s and 60s. Mingus' music is rooted in the gospel tradition and sections of collective improvisation and free solos are written to replicate the earliest church services that he attended.
