Featuring a band of internationally renowned musicians, Blues and Roots Ensemble is dedicated to sharing the music of Charles Mingus, through live performances and community education projects. Covering all aspects from free improvisation to classic, gospel influenced blues, the band aims to capture the essence of the classic Mingus sound but with a contemporary, creative flavour. Having formed in 2016 the band has quickly grown a reputation for raucous and uplifting sell out performances at some of London’s most prestigious jazz clubs and UK Jazz Festivals.

'Blues and Roots Ensemble did a service to the larger than life legend Charles Mingus… handling the complexities of the bass playing genius with a dapper swagger.' – Jazz Standard.

This event is part of the Cambridge Jazz Festival.
