Mingus Underground Octet

“The great jazz bass player, composer, arranger and bandleader, Charles Mingus, had a unique approach to music. The Mingus Underground Octet, formed in 2014 and featuring some of the finest jazz and improvising musicians in the South East and London, are dedicated to capturing the excitement and the spirit of Mingus’ music and to giving audiences the opportunity to hear his unique legacy performed live by a larger ensemble.” We chatted to Andy Pickett, alto sax player from the Mingus Underground Octet.
