These in-depth interviews, conducted several years before Mingus died, capture the man's spirit and voice verbatim. They reveal how he saw himself as composer and performer, how he viewed his peers and predecessors, and how he created his extraordinary music. With interviews and commentary by ten close associates, including Mingus's wife Sue, Teo Macero, George Wein, Dan Morgenstern and Sy Johnson, author John F. Goodman provides remarkable new perspectives on this great musician's life and career.
