Drawing its repertoire from the music of the great jazz composer and bassist, Charles Mingus, the band embodies the freedom of interpretation and drive that characterise the music of one of the most important and colourful figures in jazz. Expect to hear lesser known Mingus compositions as well as familiar favourites such as 'Boogie Stop Shuffle', 'Fables of Faubus' and 'Better Get Hit in Your Soul'
"an enormous sound for a six-piece...the perfect mix of Mingus favourites and unfamiliar material, with solo power to burn and arrangements that found huge variety from three front-line instruments." - Ron Simpson, Jazz on a Winter's Weekend, Southport.
Come early for a pre-gig session in the bar with the NYJO Combo featuring their patron Tony Kofi.
