Review:

"Mingus was something else. A pure genius. I loved him." Miles Davis; "The jazz world has seen its fair share of compelling autobiographies but none to rival the quality of Beneath the Underdog. A shocking and brilliant book. Five stars." Q; "There has never been an autobiography like Beneath the Underdog. A riveting work of highly subjective reminiscences and tortured self-analysis." Richard Williams; "[Mingus'] autobiography teeters between derangement and genius." Time Out; "An outlandish, brilliant autobiography." Newsweek

About the Author:

Charles Mingus (1922-79) is widely regarded as being the most influential and important post-bop bassist to have emerged from the jazz world. Not simply a player, he is also considered to be one of the most important and experimental composers in twentieth century music.
