Charles Mingus- "Beneath the Underdog"

a long time back, i read Charles Mingus' autobiography : Beneath the Underdog: His World As Composed by Mingus (Vintage Books, ISBN: 0679737618) It has actually been years since i read the book, but some of the words and surreal anecdotes resurface in my mind quite frequently. If you've ever heard Mingus' music- its the same... the melodies and rhythms get stuck in your head.. PERMANENTLY.

my favorite cd by Mingus: the Black Saint and the Sinner Lady
