Better Git It in Your Soul - Charles Mingus


323 pgs.
Univ. of California Press, Publ.

Krin Gabbard explores the most important events in Mingus's life, carefully looking at Mingus as a writer, composer, and musician. He digs into how and why Mingus chose to do so much self-analysis, how he worked to craft his racial identity, and how Mingus's mental and physical health problems shaped his career. Gabbard convincingly argues that Charles Mingus created a unique language of emotions - and not just in music.
