Celebrating Coltrane & Mingus: We Four

Opening: Fred Hoadley’s expanded Sonando nonet with guests Thomas Marriott (trumpet) and Mark Taylor (sax), bring a Latin slant to the restless genius of Charles Mingus. $22 general, $20 members/seniors, $10 students (Co-presented with the Central District Forum for Arts & Ideas) (Welcomed by KPLU 88.5FM NPR)
