Charles Mingus’s Ah Um album was recorded on the 5th and the 12th May 1959 exactly 65 year ago so we thought it a good idea to celebrate that by bringing Dave Manington’s sextet back to the club for their re-creation of the album

Bassist and composer Dave Manington is one of the mainstays of the London jazz scene, a founder member of the Loop Collective, he has played with many of the pre-eminent jazz musicians in the UK and Europe including Julian Arguelles, Marius Neset, Gwilym Simcock, Mark Lockheart, Tim Garland, Iain Ballamy, Gwyneth Herbert, Pete King and Alan Barnes amongst many others. He’s also in demand for a broad range of different ensembles, playing with musicians from everywhere from South America to the Balkans

He has released 3 cds , Headrush , Hullabaloo and Challenger Deep

This sextet was put together to celebrate the 60th anniversary of the release of Mingus’s masterpiece Mingus Ah Um
