Usher/Smallcombe Octet presents: Mingus Thingus – 01/12/19 @ 3pm

Jeff Usher and John Smallcombe have joined forces to present an afternoon of music by the legendary jazz bassist and composer Charles Mingus. Hear Mingus as he was always meant to be heard… live! These arrangements of Mingus’ works have been transcribed right off his albums and will be played in the same spirit as the originals. Celebrating 60 years since the recording of his masterpiece, Mingus Ah Um, and 40 years since his passing, we have organised this special concert to pay tribute to the Underdog himself, Charles Mingus.
