In this first book-length study of the music of Charles Mingus, author Lynn Rene Bayley argues that Mingus was one of the greatest composers of the twentieth century. Often controversial, Bayley discusses Mingus' life in context with analyzes of his most important compositions. Including many musical examples on the accompanying CD, biographies of the musicians who played in his groups, and an updated discography, this book breaks new ground in the discussion of Mingus, jazz and American music.
