What Is Jazz?

       “Words are the children of reason and, therefore, can’t explain it. 
       They really can’t translate feeling because they’re not part of it. 
       That’s why it bugs me when people try to analyze jazz as an intellectual theorem. 
       It’s not. It’s feeling“

           Bill Evans, jazz pianist (1929-1980)

To find more info about the documentary go to

"A grandson’s journey through the lore and legends of jazz history to find his grandfather, Charles Mingus he never knew
... . ...
There are many perspectives of my grandfather that have not had a place in defining his legacy…
I am seeking them out to understand him beyond myth, fable or a singular vision of his work.
We have begun to create a platform where we can use the ideals of jazz in the art of making a film

Three Dexter Gordon CDs (which are also available separately) are housed in this particular Black Lion box. The music included on Both Sides Of Midnight, Body And Soul and Take The A Train were performed live during a two-day period at the legendary Copenhagen club Montmartre by the veteran tenor with pianist Kenny Drew, bassist Niels Pederson and drummer Albert "Tootie" Heath. The 15 standards (including two versions of "Blues Walk") find Dexter in typically exuberant form, stretching out (only two numbers are under 8 1/2 minutes) and sounding quite relaxed even at the more rapid tempoes. Gordons many fans will want this music in one form or another.

Charles Mingus - Right Now (1964)

Charles Mingus - Right Now: Live At The Jazz Workshop (1964)
Label: OJC
MP3 @192kbs : 67mb

Recorded live at The Jazz Workshop in San Francisco, CA on June 2 & 3, 1964

Charles Mingus bass John Handy alto sax (#1) Clifford Jordan tenor sax Jane Getz piano Dannie Richmond drums

1. New Fables 23:18
2. Meditation (For A Pair Of Wire Cutters) 23:42

Soon after Charles Mingus finished touring Europe with his band (the unit that featured Eric Dolphy), he recorded this CD, performed live at The Jazz Workshop in San Francisco. With tenor-saxophonist Clifford Jordan and drummer Dannie Richmond still in the group but Jane Getz replacing pianist Jaki Byard and altoist John Handy filling in for Dolphy on one song, the band performs excellent versions of "Meditations on Integration" and "New Fables," both of which are over 23 minutes long. Although not up to the passionate level of the Mingus-Dolphy Quintet, this underrated unit holds its own.
