Charles Mingus & Dannie Richmond
Just a quick post today.
I'm spending the weekend getting my life in order before attending a Jazz @ Lincoln Center Jazz Educator's Workshop next week and then off to the Banff Centre for the Arts for four weeks up until the end of February. More on these exciting upcoming experiences later.
Busy times !
Anyhow, here's one of the great bass & drum pairings in jazz music, Charles Mingus and Dannie Richmond, trading back and forth - and then Mingus himself briefly explaining to an interviewer what he's thinking about when doing so (!)
Yes - music is conversation !
