Robin & The Mutts perform 'Mingus', San Diego, Nov 8

July 25, 2014

On the day after Joni Mitchell’s 71st birthday, San Diego based band, Robin Adler and Mutts Of The Planet present “Mingus” – the extraordinary 1979 collaboration between Joni Mitchell and Charles Mingus. It was to be Mingus’ farewell project before his passing, and it created much controversy among Mitchell’s fans who were unprepared for her full embrace of the jazz artform. It began her long association with Herbie Hancock, Wayne Shorter, and Peter Erskine and cemented her status as an uncompromising artist forever. San Diego’s top jazz musicians, Joshua White, Tripp Sprague, Rob Thorsen, and Duncan Moore will join Robin Adler and Dave Blackburn for this special concert 8PM at Dizzy’s in San Diego – $20 cover More info.
