About Charles Mingus
Charles Mingus was a major creative force in jazz from the 1950’s until his death
in 1979. His complex, original, and hard-driving music was matched only by his
volcanic temperament. Although Mingus is well-known as a jazz icon, his music
is not as familiar to most Americans. This program provides a rare chance for
Nashville audiences to hear and learn about this music from an all-star NJW
faculty ensemble under the direction of bassist Roger Spencer, with
arrangements by Denis Solee.
