Mingus Profiles Sextet northern dates

Chris Biscoe has brought together six top-class players to pay tribute to the genius of Charles Mingus.

Chris Biscoe - alto sax and alto clarinet;
Tony Kofi – alto and tenor sax;
Henry Lowther - trumpet and flugelhorn;
Kate Williams – piano; Larry Bartley – bass;
Stu Butterfield – drums
Formed in 2011 for the Southbank Meltdown Festival, the Sextet concentrates on Mingus’s musical portraits of friends, lovers, political enemies, musicians and one cat, with pieces from the classic ‘Ah Um’ at the core of the repertoire.

“Biscoe's sparkling arrangements and splendid playing vividly capture Mingus's sprawling, rumbustious energy, while giving the music a fresh twist”….Kenny Mathieson, The Scotsman
