Centennial: 100 Years of Charles Mingus
January 26 @ 5:00 pm - 7:00 pm PST
Charles McPherson is one of the last people alive that played with Mingus. Charles Mingus (1922-1979), bassist and composer, was not only one of the greatest jazz musicians and jazz ensemble leaders of all time, but also one of the most important American musicians of the 20th century. We now celebrate his Centennial with an eclectic two-hour virtual event, combining readings, commentary, reminiscences, and performance.
