b. 8 July 1964, NEW YORK, NY, USA. The kid of the renowned jazz bass participant, Charles Mingus, he as well plays bass. For a few years he proved helpful as a program musician and support vocalist, playing on schedules with artists such as for example Carla Bley, Bobby McFerrin and Karen Mantler. When executing in his very own right, Mingus’ function shows a politically conscious and relatively rebellious streak similar to his dad although within a different genre. In lots of of the music he performs, a few of which he also creates, he confronts conditions that still detrimentally have an effect on dark and mixed-race Us citizens. By the end from the 90s, Mingus’ popularity began to pass on overseas, owing partly for an appearance in Britain on the Meltdown Celebration, where he performed at London’s Royal Celebration Hall.
