From Socipluco 07/12/2015 13:37
Charles Mingus was one of the most important jazz musicians of all time. One of those whose own names mean jazz on its own, like the kinds of Davis, Taylor or Sanders. He was one of the very few double-bass players who could take their instrument out of the rhythm section and smash it right on the listener's face, with a sound so hard and fierce that it pumps in your chest, but still with high technical precision. Fierce like him, a really bad tempered person. But beyond this, he was a great, great, great composer, the only one who could probably match the level of Duke Ellington. His mastery in orchestrating different musical voices in a whole so united and complete was even beyond compares. Just listen to "the sinner lady" for an example, but his all discography is worth listen. A master.
