The Jazz Legacy of Charles Mingus
feat Arild Andersen

Arild Andersen

The Scottish National Jazz Orchestra (SNJO) is joined by master Norwegian bassist Arild Andersen to celebrate the life and work of a truly extraordinary jazz musician: the visionary bass player, bandleader and composer, Charles Mingus.

The repertoire and reputation of Mingus represent one man’s forceful vision for orchestral jazz, and his powerful challenge to orthodoxy. He is vindicated by a musical legacy that remains relevant, inspiring and influential to this day.

Arild Andersen is indisputably one of the world’s great bass players. His career began in earnest in the late 1960’s, and his work denotes one of the great achievements in European jazz. The widely acclaimed SNJO continues to grow, and scale new creative heights in powerful artistic collaborations that stir the senses and lift the soul.

The SNJO, directed by Tommy Smith, joins forces with Arild Andersen to fully explore the multi-chambered music of Charles Mingus with improvisational inventiveness, artistry and imagination.
