This is the Mingus Big Band. A 14 piece Jazz band that pay homage to the phenomanal composer and Base player. The performance captured the diversity of Mingus'es compositions; everything from bebop, to straight ahead renditions of Good by Pork Pie Hat(in honor of Lester Young, to a piece I had never heard before, The Children's hour of prayer. which could have been written to compliment Bernsteins west side story. Every musician is virtuoso and every musician had a great imporovizational solo. The evening was totally psychotic.
