The Jazz Legacy of Charles Mingus
Charles Mingus was a truly extraordinary jazz musician: a visionary bass player, bandleader and composer.
Norwegian master bassist Arild Andersen joins the Scottish National Jazz Orchestra to celebrate the life and work of Charles Mingus. His incredible repertoire and reputation represent one man’s forceful vision for orchestral jazz, and a powerful challenge to orthodoxy. MIngus is vindicated by a musical legacy that remains relevant, inspiring and influential to this day. The SNJO and Arild Andersen are thrilled to explore his music and will delight audiences with their improvisational inventiveness, artistry and imagination.
