Better Get Hit In Your Soul

DJD

Returning To Calgary By Popular Demand!

In 2013 DJD premiered a piece about the wild short life of Charles Mingus— a virtuoso bass player, accomplished pianist, bandleader and composer.

Known as the ‘Angry Man of Jazz’ Mingus was a brilliant, mercurial and bodacious character.

Better Get Hit in Your Soul gives audiences an ear and eye into the music of one of the most important figures in 20th-century American music. Join us as we explore his music and some of the lighter and darker sides of his dramatic life.
