Charles Mingus - Arild Andersen

One of the most talked about jazz concerts that ever happened in Norway, is the Charles Mingus Sextet concert at The University Aula in Oslo in April 1964.

Now, fifty years later, Oslo Jazz Festival invited Arild Andersen Sextet to pay homage to Mingus and that concert (12 August), the music being arranged by Petter Wettre.

Arild Andersen Sextet:
Mathias Eick – trumpet
Klaus Holm – alto, bass clarinet
Petter Wettre- tenor
