Jazz Standard, New York, NY
The absorbing jazz–meets–classical sounds of the Mingus Orchestra will fill Jazz Standard tonight. “Mingus generates and keeps generating such personal force that if you have been listening to jazz at all, it is almost impossible not to recognize his bass, his compositions, his small combos and his orchestras instantly,” wrote critic and author Nat Hentoff in the 1970s. “Like Duke. Like Monk. And like them, unlike anybody.”
