The Scottish National Jazz Orchestra featuring Arild Andersen present T he Jazz Legacy of Charles Mingus
The Scottish National Jazz Orchestra (SNJO) is joined by master Norwegian bassist Arild Andersen to celebrate the life and work of a truly extraordinary jazz musician: the visionary bass player, bandleader and composer, Charles Mingus.
The repertoire and reputation of Mingus represents one man’s forceful vision for orchestral jazz, and his powerful challenge to orthodoxy. He is vindicated by a musical legacy that remains relevant, inspiring and influential to this day.
Free pre concert talk at 6.45pm.
