Summary
{28}Charles Mingus was one of the more tempesƯtuous talents of jazz: a bassist, bandleader, composer and dynamo of creativity who never let up.Two of his friends wrote this recollection of his life and times. We should all have such friends. Mingus/Mingus rushes forward with the energy of a stand-up monologue and serves as a faithful mirror of one of modern music's more difficult personalities. It is a breezy but heartfelt tribute to an irascible talent, a collection as passionate and unruly as its subject, funny, respectful and revealing." --The New York Times Book Review
