The shape of Jazz that came

This is a documentary about Charles Mingus, the famous Jazz improviser and composer. I'm not that up on improvised Jazz but I sorta like this guy, mostly because of old footage of him being a handsome devil and shouting instructions at his band. I think Radiohead had a shiny boner for him around the time of Kid A and it kinda comes through on that album I guess. Its my favorite album as well, so y'know watch the rest of this documentary and feel all relaxed and drink some port or sumthin. I don't know, is that what Jazz fans do with their time? Probably


I like old documentaries y'see
