Blake Lonie Sextet Presents: Charles Mingus – 01/11/18

Having graduated in 2016 from JMI Blake Lonie has been busy performing professionally in all manner of musical projects across the east coast of Australia during the last 2 years. This project he steps up to the position of band leader to pay homage to one of his biggest influences in double bass playing and music composition; Charles Mingus.

Coming together with a sextet of some of his favourite local musicians, Blake presents a repertoire of some lesser known original pieces performed in different orchestrations throughout Mingus’ extensive repertoire including his interpretation of a few standards. The groups’ aim is to capture the magic created between the band via the compositions, through the new lens of modern musicians.
