Jazz 100 - Charles Mingus 26 Jun 2017
A larger than life personality, Charles Mingus created music that hummed with blood, roared with passion, went to church and sang the blues. His virtuosic, ultra-punchy bass playing aside, his great strength lay in being able to incorporate the whole history of jazz – and sometimes its future – and channel collective freedom into an eloquent, intensely moving testimony.
