Bassist, composer and bandleader Charles Mingus (1922–1979) “packed an incendiary mix of soulful music, impassioned politics, cross–genre vision and creative but occasionally self–destructive impetuosity into a three–decade career.” (The Guardian) Our acclaimed “Mingus Monday” series continues tonight with two incendiary sets by the mighty Mingus Big Band, which won a 2010 GRAMMY Award for the album Live At Jazz Standard.
