Mingus - Live in the Underworld
for Double Bass and Narrator

Another unusal combining of music and poetry, Mingus - Live in the Underworld is a true tour de force for the bassist who is comfortable in both jazz and classical styles. It is also a perfect companion piece to Ode to a Giant. John Chenault's words capture the many conflicting aspects of the man.
