You either enjoy Mingus’s music, or feel you are staring into the pit of hell’ So said Humphrey Littleton, and he was a great fan. Tonight’s sextet, led by driving bassist Arnie Somogyi, certainly kept the spirit of Mingus alive. Judging from the reaction of the audience at Chichester Jazz Club, they were firmly in the ‘enjoy’ camp - or had a strong affinity with the pit of hell. Fantastic finale to the season!
Arnie Somogyi – bass, Tony Kofi - saxophones, Alan Barnes – saxophones, Jeremy Price – trombone, Mark Edwards – piano, Clark Tracey - drums.
