The Eloquent Firing of Charles Mingus by Duke Ellington
Krin Gabbard

Great story about Mingus and Duke. I have heard many stories about the bullying of Mingus with his own musicians so i am not surprised, he had a temper and would confront an audience member if you talked or said anything out of line when he was performing. But i loved the guy and the way he played. Thanks for this most interesting article.
