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.Review:
Born consumed with rage...Mingus translated these feelings into some of the most awesome music ever made. This harrowingly honest autobiography is equally moving. * Bizarre * Rich on anecdote and emotional self-analysis. He was maddening - but read this and it'll make you mad at what he went through. * Uncut * The jazz world has seen its share of compelling autobiographies but none to rival the quality of Beneath the Underdog. A shocking and brilliant book. * Q * There has never been an autobiography like Beneath the Underdog. A riveting work of highly subjective reminiscences and tortured self-analysis -- Richard Williams This remarkable book, part autobiography, part street-smart philosophical meditation, part fiction, and part fantasy, provides a unique insight into the creative and personal tumult behind his music. * The List *
