Mingus Between Two Cities
May 15 @ 7:30 pm - 8:30 pm EDT
This show will feature the music of Charles Mingus performed by a 7-piece band with the rhythm section and horn section each split between Ottawa and Toronto. Yeah it’s crazy but we’re all about pushing the envelope!
Join us for a rousing, raucous, free-spirited, free-wheeling exploration of Mingus’s most compelling compositions infused with the sounds of hard bop, soul, gospel, and blues.
Featuring a hard-hitting band performing across 500 kms:
Ed Lister – trumpet
David Renaud – alto saxophone
Trevor Hogg – tenor saxophone
Mark Ferguson – trombone
Mike Manny – piano
Michael Herring – double bass
Tim Shia – drums
With some storytelling and virtual bandleading from bassist and syncspace.live founder Adrian Cho.
