A rousing gig to round off the Sheffield Jazz spring 2019 season: the return of the sextet who were so good at the Crucible Studio in autumn 2015. A band inspired by the orchestral colour and spontaneous feel of Charles Mingus's small group music, they have developed an increasingly individual approach, exploring new directions while continuing to reflect the spirit of that music.
"Uplifting, exuberant, rousing yet consistently intelligent music: Mingus would undoubtedly have approved." – The Times
