Friday, April 22, 2022, 8:00 p.m.

On the occasion of the centenary of his birth, the RTÉ Concert Orchestra & Big Band pays tribute to Charles Mingus. In an imaginative first, RTÉ CO has teamed up with its counterpart the BBC Concert Orchestra to commission a special set of never-before-seen orchestrations from Guy Barker, allowing both orchestras to do full justice to one of jazz’s greatest musicians. of all.

With that, back by popular demand, Barker’s incredible orchestration of Miles Davis’ classic album, Kind of Blue. As the London Jazz News wrote of his treatment, “What might have been heavy and over the top is fast, ecstatic, thrilling”. A performance in Dublin in 2019 won an extended standing ovation from a packed house.

Mingus and Davis, performed by an orchestra and big band with serious jazz pedigree under one of the biggest names in the industry – all of which makes this a must-attend event for jazz fans!
