Mingus Dynasty: Tijuana Moods

Mingus Dynasty: Tijuana MoodsA special performance by Mingus Dynasty

The Athenaeum’s spring series at the Auditorium at TSRI begins early this year with a special performance by Mingus Dynasty, composed of seven members of the Mingus Big Band, all leading jazz artists from New York City: Alex Sipiagin, trumpet Wayne Escoffery, tenor sax Brandon Wright, alto sax and flute Ku-umba Frank Lacy, trombone & vocals Theo Hill, piano Boris Kozlov, bass and Adam Cruz, drums.  They come to Athenaeum Jazz to perform a rare revival of Charles Mingus’s celebrated 1957 album Tijuana Moods, documenting Mingus’s lively and compelling impressions of our neighboring city of Tijuana.  A seminal figure in American music, Charles Mingus is considered one of the most important composers in jazz history.

This concert is presented in association with the San Diego Symphony’s 2018 winter festival, It’s About Time: A Festival of Rhythm, Time and Place, with grant support from the Western States Arts Federation (WESTAF) and the National Endowment for the Arts (NEA).
