Sequence to Sequence (Seq2Seq) approaches have shown good performances in automatic music generation. We introduce MINGUS, a Transformer-based Seq2Seq architecture for modelling and generating monophonic jazz melodic lines. MINGUS relies on two dedicated embedding models (respectively for pitch and duration) and exploits in prediction features such as chords (current and following), bass line, position inside the measure. The obtained results are comparable with the state of the art of music
