"Trinity Buoy Wharf Live!" presents Jazz Wednesdays, featuring Blues and Roots Ensemble.
Led by double bassist Ed Babar, Blues and Roots specialises in playing music by the great bandleader/composer, Charles Mingus. A diverse septet of top international musicians from South Africa to Sicily, India to Cuba, the band has quickly grown a reputation for its captivating and raucous performances.
An evening showcasing the music of great jazz musician, Charles Mingus; music born out of 40s gospel churches, including everything from open improvised sections to beautiful ballad playing. Mingus' music served as a social commentary of the political turbulence in America through the 40s-70s, all within the context of great, swinging compositions!
"Blues and Roots Ensemble did a service to the larger than life legend Charles Mingus...handling the complexities of the bass playing genius with a dapper swagger." Jazz Standard.
