Sydney baritone saxophonist Steve Fitzmaurice brings to life the fiery and energetic compositions of Charles Mingus with an all star line up comprising of James Loughnan (tenor sax); Peter Farrah (alto sax); Jamie Cameron (drums); Brendan Clarke (bass); Mike Raper (trombone); Mark Barnsley (trombone); Ray Cassar (trumpet); and Nick Southcott on piano.
‘Mingus Amongst Us’ perfectly captures the raucous, fiery energy that Mingus and his compositions were famous for!
“It’s raucous, just as Mingus would have liked it!”
Jessica Nicholas ABC Jazz
“Earthy, passionate and sophisticated, blues and gospel inspired jazz”
“There’s so much energy in Mingus, so much of it is released by this ensemble” Roger Mitchell @Ausjazz.net.au
