This concert presents a sextet playing the music of Charles Mingus and Rahsaan Roland Kirk. Forces in the 1950s and 60s, Mingus and Kirk brought a modern verve to music rooted in gospel and blues. Both artists led the direction of contemporary jazz music. The band tries to capture the experience of their live performances. They have performed in jazz clubs, art galleries and outdoor festivals, often augmenting their music with poetry and social-historic presentations. The sextet features Bob Drinkwater and Bob McCloskey on reeds, John Licata on trombone, Rick Lynch on piano, Dave Gold on bass and Dave Dillon on drums.
