We're planning another Mingus Awareness Project concert in Chicago for the fall.
Congratulations to the No BS! Brass Band for the release of their new Fight Song: A Tribute to Charles Mingus CD. They've been promoting their new CD with a tour, and have been getting a lot of buzz -- with coverage in The Wall Street Journal, Paste Magazine, WBGO (88.3FM in Newark, NJ), and other media outlets. No BS! also released RVA All Day last month; check it out!
Check out the Borderbend media gallery for "Charles Mingus at 90," a year-long celebration of Charles Mingus' life and legacy that happened last year.
Stay tuned for more updates!
