Mingus Undergrount Octet

The Mingus Underground Octet was put together to play the music of the great bassist and bandleader, Charles Mingus. The band comprises some of the best jazz players on the local and national scene, and aims to recreate the spirit and excitement of the great Mingus bands and recordings.
Andy says, “I’ve always been a big fan of Mingus, since I first got into jazz, and Mingus was one of the first jazz albums that I bought way back in the days before CDs. As a player I’ve long wanted to try and play some of the this music and to try and capture in some small way the essence of the music and having asked around it quickly became apparent that lots of other musicians felt the same way. I started arranging the music.
