A Weekend Jazz Classic: Charles Mingus And Gerry Mulligan Together In 1975

Here are two of the greats of modern jazz, together, albeit late in both careers, for Goodbye Pork Pie Hat, written for the late, great Lester Young.

Mingus, in addition to being one of the most skilled stand-up bass players, was a most gifted composer, largely considered second only to Ellington in jazz history.

If you dig it, enjoy. -- MJ
