Last year the ScottClark4tet had the honor of being asked to participate in the Mingus Awareness Project. “The Mingus Awareness Project is a series of concerts that benefits organizations that provide support for individuals who have ALS as well as their families. 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. Eleven Mingus Awareness Project concerts have happened in Chicago, IL and Richmond, VA since 2007.”
The show featured many Richmond bands including Glows in the Dark, No BS! Brass Band, The Angry Man Quartet, Hooten/Levin/Jones ft. JC Kuhl, and the Jon Hey Quartet. The Borderbend Arts Collective made a recording of the whole night, which is available on the Mingus Awareness Project bandcamp page here http://bit.ly/11xI8vu. (here is a link to the 2nd half of the show http://bit.ly/11yL4Mj.)
Enjoy the music and please consider purchasing a copy of the recording to support this great cause.
thanks for the support
