Mingusology

w/ Steak&Honour Burgers serving 6-9pm. 

Martin's Kemp's Mingusology

Mingusology a rip-roaring 9 pieceband playing the blues infused and exciting music of Charles Mingus, had its first highly successful performance in November 2005 at the Plough Jazz Club in London and in Cambridge at Jazz at Johns.    A smaller ensemble played at C Venues at the Edinburgh Fringe in August 2006. Martin has 'arranged' classic Mingus works for this large ensemble with the objective of preserving the Mingus elements of surprise, danger, commitment and spontaneity.   The ensemble has included Nick Weldon (piano) Malcolm Earl Smith (trombone) Josh Kemp (tenor sax) Adam and Alex Waldmann (sax and drums) and Mick Coady (bass). The most recent(and riotous) gig was for the MehrClef showcase at the 606 Clubin Chelsea.

They will also be joined by the mini-mingus!
