Virtuoso bassist, innovative bandleader, composer of genius and legendary jazz character, Charles Mingus was a man driven by many passions. Mingus’s music is as varied and passionate as his personality, running the gamut from joyous gospel and a multitude of blues all the way to quasi-classical suites, political commentaries, and tender tributes to his musical heroes. In this show, Cold Spring Jazz Quartet showcases the full range of Mingus’s work, punctuating the selections with humorous, informative stories about the man and his music.
