CD Reviews

The best big band in the world, no doubt about it.
(5 out of 5 stars)

"When I first heard the band I thought the songs where, a little unusual. That lasted about three minutes. Ever since I've been hooked, and this is the best album yet. Anyone who likes jazz should buy this CD."
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Yet another amazing performance by the Mingus Big Band! The raw energy and power that the band plays with would really impress Mingus today, and should be the only band to play his music. Ronnie Cuber, Randy Brecker, Frank Lacy, and many others shine on another incredible collaboration."
Amazing CD of the unique Charles Mingus jazz

(5 out of 5 stars)

"This CD has so many fantastic songs. Moanin' is one of my favorite jazz charts, and no one does it better than Ronnie Cuber. The musicians in these recordings are truely some of the jazz greats. There are tons of solo sections, which will wow anyone no matter what they play. I am a bass trombonist, and Dave Taylor (bass bone on this CD) is in my opinion the best jazz bass trombonist ever, and it is evident in this CD. These songs by Mingus are truely unique in style, only similar to the Maria Schneider jazz charts. Musician or not, get Mingus Big Band 93:Nostaliga in Times Square."
