Siegmund Freud's Mothers: Swedish Mingus Band: All The Things You Could Be By Now...

Read "All The Things You Could Be By Now..." reviewed by Ian Patterson

Considering his stature in jazz history and the enormity of the body of work Charles Mingus left the world (perhaps only Duke Ellington was more prolific) it is surprising that so few of his compositions have ever been covered. However, in the form of the Mingus Big band, the Mingus Orchestra, the Mingus Dynasty and Mingus Amungus, the flame of the great underdog is kept lovingly alive. To that list add Siegmund Freud's Mothers, a.k.a the Swedish Mingus band.

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded albums and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, limited reopenings and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary step that will help musicians and venues now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the sticky footer ad). Thank you!
