at the Walt Disney Concert Hall
with Christian McBride and conductor
Gunther Schuller



right here in Los Angeles, CA was one of the true heros of the music,

the Underdog himself, Mr. Charles Mingus. His passion eminated through

the lion headed curvatious hollow body of a woman who sang his praises

when carressed by his powerful touch!


wrote longest and most beautiful piece of music and said, “When I die,

put this on my tomb stone”,” Epitaph”. He was never able to perfom the

piece in its entierty but, with the help of Christian McBride and

Gunther Shuller, the music will RISE again!

It all happens on RISE with Mark Maxwell every Sunday night weekly on 90.7fm KPFK here in Los Angeles or KPFK.ORG
@ 11pm PST – 2am PST
