      <p class="big-cap">Standing with the greats of jazz such as Charlie Parker and Dizzy Gillespie, <a href="http://mingusmingusmingus.com" target="_blank">Charles Mingus</a> was and remains one of the greatest jazz performers and composers of his era.  Mingus was not only a master of tight big-band composition in the fashion of his personal idol Duke Ellington, he also pioneered experimental free jazz compositions a decade before Coltrane hit the scene.  Wielding his famous upright bass most of the time, and occasionally the piano, Charles Mingus cut a path through jazz from the 1950's through the 70's that is still trod by devotees and imitators today.

      <p class="big-cap">Literally a towering figure in jazz, Charles Mingus was not a gentle giant.  By most accounts of his contemporaries, he was a demanding perfectionist at best and a volatile mean-tempered bully at worst.  Notable for being the only member of Duke Ellington's band to be personally fired by Ellington himself (after allegedly brandishing a fire axe at another performer), Mingus was, to put it mildly, not easy to get along with.  Another story had him dramatically cashiering a member of his own band on-stage by slamming the piano lid shut, nearly breaking the pianist's fingers.  While some of these accounts may have been exaggerated over time to match his stature, there's little doubt that ultimately he lived up to his sobriquet <strong>"The Angry Man of Jazz."</strong> </p>
