Conrad Herwig
The Latin Side of Mingus

After receiving four Grammy nominations for his highly successful series of recordings that “latinize” the music of John Coltrane, Miles Davis, Joe Henderson, Wayne Shorter, Herbie Hancock and Horace Silver, Conrad Herwig turns his attention to the legendary Charles Mingus. This latest installment in Conrad Herwig's “Latin Side” series pays tribute to the work of Charles Mingus with progressive arrangements, propulsive rhythms, exciting solos and the consummate musicianship of the leader and his bandmates.
