Mingus Lives!

If you're not listening already - listen now!. It's fantastic!
Tune in to Radio 3 or listen to the whole shebang here.
I'm already adding it to my Key Moments!
Wow! that was really something! Best Jazz at the Proms concert ever!
The good news is that you can watch it on BBC 4 tomorrow night (August 25) at 7:30pm. Better Git it in Your Soul!
Lance.
PS: Going down well with the promenaders too!

Thank you so much for drawing my attention to this. Fantastic concert! I don't often like orchestral arrangements of jazz but Mingus' music really works here.
