Rare London performance by a long established band with an original take on the compositions of Charles Mingus
Formed as Mingus Moves more than twenty years ago, Profiles of Mingus embodies the spirit of the great musical tradition of Charles Mingus while giving free reign to a powerhouse collective of improvisers. Concentrating on Mingus’s portraits of fellow musicians, lovers, political opponents and one toilet-trained cat, Profiles of Mingus ranges widely across the jazz spectrum.
“Biscoe’s sparkling arrangements and splendid playing vividly capture Mingus’s sprawling, rumbustious energy, while giving the music a fresh twist.” (The Scotsman)
“….flows with all the force of the originals, the ensemble broiling somewhere between whitewater and wildfire….” The Independent
