Norrbotten Big Band och Steve Slagle

Steve SlagleBass player Charles Mingus, 1922-79, was one of the most powerful personalities in jazz - both physically and musically. After his death, his wife Sue founded the Mingus Big Band in New York in the spirit of Charles Mingus, her obvious choice as the organizer and artistic director was saxophone player Steve Slagle.

Norrbotten Big Band will in this production interpret Slagle´s tough arrangements and present its many great soloists. The bands artistic director Tim Hagans will be heard as a trumpet soloist and will also arrange a Mingus composition for Slagle´s altosax.

Slagle counters by dedicating to Tim a solo number. How´s that for musical brotherhood!?! Without a doubt, this is one of the most interesting and challenging projects that the NBB has planned over the years.
