The Mingus Big Band is an ensemble, based in New York City, that specializes in the compositions of Charles Mingus. It is managed by his widow, Sue Mingus, along with the Mingus Orchestra and Mingus Dynasty. In addition to its weekly Monday night appearance at Jazz Standard in New York City, the Mingus Big Band tours frequently, giving performances and clinics in America, Europe, and other parts of the world.

Sue Mingus Music) £1. 9. Charles Mingus died in 1979, but his obstreperous spirit refuses to lie down. This CD was recorded last year and its mixture of tenderness, wild celebration and occasional knockabout humour is as fresh as ever. The sessions, often recorded on a front-porch studio with coconut matting for walls, make for an interesting DVD travel documentary but an uninvolving finished album. Still, Bob had fun and the locals got a new supply of guitar strings.

On I Am Three, members of the Mingus Big Band, Orchestra & Dynasty have taken the same liberties with the master's works that jazz musicians take with the American Popular Song, combining their own artistry with the Mingus' music in new ways. Another contender for Best Classical Album, Southwest Chamber Music led by conductor Jeff Von Der Schmidt, attempts a three-year sweep of the BEST SMALL ENSEMBLE PERFORMANCE (WITH OR WITHOUT CONDUCTOR) category with their Chávez: Complete Chamber Music, Vol. 3. Stiff competition is offered by 25-time GRAMMY Award-winner Pierre Boulez, who led his Ensemble Intercontemporain in performances of his own Le.

The nimble and expert 7-piece Mingus Dynasty was the first band Sue Mingus organized after Charles Mingus’s death in 1979. Although big bands like the Glenn Miller and Tommy Dorsey bands had continued to perform after their leader passed on, a similar legacy never existed for smaller ensembles. Because Mingus always said he was first and foremost a composer, and because he left behind over 300 compositions that deserved to be played, a band carrying on his music became a natural, if unanticipated, mission.
