Jazz Standard, New York, NY
The Mingus Orchestra is considered by many to be the most adventurous and intellectually daring of the three Mingus legacy bands. The group combines jazz and “non–jazz” instruments, such as oboe and bassoon; and the repertoire ranges from the moody ballad “Noon Night” to “Half Mast Inhibition,” described by Nate Chinen in The New York Times as moving “from a frantic march to a sumptuous dose of Orientalism, and on through a flamenco–like waltz.”
