Charles Mingus: Tijuana Moods

“The same goes for saxophone, although it is not used much in symphony. But anything Milhaud has done in classical music, McPherson and Bird, alone, do with ease as well as human warmth and beauty”…..
It is from, “Let My Children Hear Music” liner notes, by Charles Mingus.

Join “It’s About Time” festival curator Steven Schick as he leads a discussion of the legacy of African-American composer Charles Mingus and his historic Tijuana Moods album project. Panelists for this discussion will include alto saxophonist Charles McPherson, one of the most longstanding members of Charles Mingus’ band; Anthony Davis, UC San Diego Professor of Music and noted composer, pianist and improviser; and others to be announced soon. This event is presented with grant support from the Western States Arts Federation (WESTAF) and the National Endowment for the Arts (NEA).
