At TivoliVredenburg, Metropole Orkest and several soloists will honour American jazz legend Charles Mingus. The orchestra will be accompanied by singer Ntjam Rosie, bass clarinet player Joris Roelofs and own soloists Rik Mol on trumpet and Robinson Khoury on trombone.
A giant of jazz, Charles Mingus combined the classic style of Duke Ellington and Jelly Roll Morton with the radical spirit of black music of the 1950s, 1960s and 1970s, and has influenced artists from Joni Mitchell and Elvis Costello to Debbie Harry. To celebrate the life and music of this legendary composer, bandleader and bass-player, this Prom features Mingus favourites including ‘Better Git Hit in Your Soul’, ‘Moanin’’ and ‘Goodbye Pork Pie Hat’.
