Bassist, band leader and co-founder of Tomorrow’s Warriors, Gary Crosby OBE brings together his sextet to celebrate the legendary jazz innovator and composer Charles Mingus, marking what would have been Mingus’ centenary year.
Crosby will lead his sextet through Mingus Moves, his personal favourite Mingus album, plus more classic compositions.
“Mingus was STAUNCH! He never compromised the music or held back on his beliefs. Yes, Mingus embraced improvisation, or as he called it ‘extemporisation’, but it starts with the power of his compositions and the belief that he had in his music,” Gary Crosby.
