Sue Neilsen, Mingus Project, says the Santa Cruz Advocates for the Arts is sponsoring the “Days of Wine & Mingus,” a fundraiser for “The Mingus Project.”  She says the goal of the project is to promote music education in SCC.  She says the Sept. 23 event is at an historic Frank Lloyd Wright Studio-designed house in Sonoita and features music by the Sweetwater Strings and wines from local wineries.  She says Charles Mingus, the jazz legend, was born in Nogales. She said the benefit is also to help fund the Mingus Project Jazz Festival in April, 2012.
