Mingus

This is what I call timely. We were just sitting in the bus going north to perform the music of Charles Mingus when the article Doc: Charles Mingus 1968 on Jazz Wax popped up in my newsreader. The article is about Thomas Reichmann’s documentary on Charles Mingus documentary which is now on You Tube.

During this period, Thomas Reichman filmed a documentary of Mingus expounding on a range of socio-political topics of the day and captured Mingus being evicted and arrested.

I have seen that one before, and it’s worth a watch.
