Biography

A major expansion on Mingus Dynasty, beginning in 1991 the Mingus Big Band (which often uses more than 20 musicians) has explored the great bassist's music at least once a week. They played regularly at the Time Spot Café in New York and their series of recordings for Dreyfus are often remarkable. The huge group performs some of Mingus' most complex works with spirit, virtuosity, and plenty of color. Such musicians as Randy Brecker, Ryan Kisor, Lew Soloff, Jack Walrath, Philip Harper, Art Baron, Frank Lacy, Ronnie Cuber, Alex Foster, Craig Handy, Chris Potter, Steve Slagle, John Stubblefield, James Carter, Kenny Drew, Jr., Michael Formanek, and Marvin "Smitty" Smith are among the many involved in this worthy and exciting project. ~ Scott Yanow
