Morning Song – Mingus Fingers

March 12, 2016

From a regular follower of this little blog:

A couple weeks ago Tom Ashbrook had a show on Charles Mingus…. Upon hearing the sweet, smooth, innovative, unique sound bites Tom played, I wondered to myself, why am I not listening to Mingus with great regularity?

And in the past couple of weeks I have been.

Words of wisdom, and an example for us all to follow. Let’s start with an early composition, “Mingus Fingers”.  (Bonus: Now you know one of Leonard Bernstein’s musical inspirations for West Side Story.)

Enjoy.
