Tucson Jazz Festival: The Mingus Dynasty

Más Información

Fox Tucson Theatre presents "The Mingus Dynasty , " a nimble and expert seven-piece band that Sue Mingus organized after her husband Charles Mingus' death in 1979. Although big bands like the Glenn Miller and Tommy Dorsey bands had continued to perform after their leader passed on, a similar legacy never existed for smaller ensembles. Because Mingus always said he was first and foremost a composer, and because he left behind over 300 compositions that deserved to be played, a band carrying on his music became a natural, if unanticipated, mission. This performance is part of the Tucson Jazz Festival.
