Mingus Awareness Project
Mingus Awareness Project
Sun, June 9 @ 7pm
$15 adv / $20 day of / $10 students

Bassist/composer Charles Mingus, one of the titans of jazz, died of Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS) on January 5, 1979.  At the time, there was no cure for ALS.  Today, forty years later, there is still no cure.

The Mingus Awareness Project (MAP)is a series of concerts that benefits organizations that provide support for individuals who have ALS as well as their families.  More than a dozen MAP concerts have happened in Chicago, Illinois, and Richmond.

MAP concerts also provide opportunities for audiences and performers to celebrate the music of Charles Mingus, music composed by artists who worked with Mingus, as well as music by composers who perform during MAP concerts.

Since 2007, drummer/composer Brian Jones has been presenting Mingus Awareness Project concerts in Richmond.  The 2019 performance will feature:
MAP Quintet:  John Dearth  trumpet, J.C. Kuhl  tenor saxophone, Calvin Brown  piano, Mike Hawkins  bass, and Brian Jones-drums.

Larrabee/Millner Duo:  Adam Larrabee  electric guitar and Jamal Millner  electric guitar.

Saint Mingus:  Reggie Pace  trombone, Suzi Fischer  alto saxophone, Stefan Demetriadis  tuba, Giustino Riccio  congas, and Brian Jones  drums.

Brian Jones is a drummer/composer/teacher living and working in Richmond, Virginia.  Jones has performed with John Abercrombie, Steven Bernstein, Gary Thomas, Randy Brecker, Mark Turner, Houston Person and many others. Jones is currently on the music faculties at University of Richmond, College of William and Mary, and Old Dominion University as well as a PhD candidate in the American Studies Program at William and Mary.
