Charles Mingus

The life and music of legendary bassist Charles Mingus will be celebrated on May 7th (9 pm) at The Hideout in Chicago. In addition to his virtuosic bass skills, Mingus was one of the most prolific composers in jazz as well as one of its most outspoken and at times outrageous personalities. Mingus was a victim of ALS and the May 7th tribute will benefit the Les Turner ALS Foundation.

The music of the Mingus Awareness Project 3 will feature:

  • 1st set, Justin Dillard―solo piano

  • 2nd set, MAPtet performing the music of Charles Mingus, Rahsaan Roland Kirk, and Eric Dolphy: Rich Corpolongo -- alto saxophone;Saalik Ziyad – vocals; Paul Hartsaw -- tenor saxophone; Nick Moran -- baritone saxophone and bass clarinet; Dan Godston – trumpet; Norman Palm – trombone; Jon Godston -- soprano saxophone; Jerry Coleman – drums; Alex Wing -- upright bass

Established in 1977, the Les Turner ALS Foundation is one of the nation’s preeminent organizations dedicated to raising funds for the treatment and elimination of amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), better known as Lou Gehrig's disease. The Foundation has been affiliated with Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine since 1979, where it funds two world-class scientific research programs (Les Turner ALS Research Laboratories I and II) and an innovative clinical care program (Lois Insolia ALS Center). The Foundation's patient service programs are available to all ALS patients and caregivers in Chicagoland, regardless of where they receive their medical care, and include support group meetings, professional in-home consultation services (Home Care and Community Services Team), communications and durable medical equipment programs, a respite grant program and numerous educational activities.


Tickets can be purchased at the door, or in advance at The Hideout website, and you can make a donation to MAP3 by clicking on http://www.lesturnerals.org/communityevents.htm. All proceeds for Mingus Awareness Project 3 go to benefit the Les Turner ALS Foundation. Attendees will also have the opportunity to participate in a raffle.
