“MINGUS ON MINGUS” — BETTER GET IT IN YOUR SOUL!

Film producer Valeria Rios is in the process of filming a documentary on Charles Mingus — that man and musician whose mystery and intensity seems inexhaustible.

Kevin Ellington Mingus, grandson of the great man, is the documentary’s director.  And its title, quite naturally, will be MINGUS ON MINGUS.  Last week Kevin and Valeria launched a Kickstarter campaign to raise funds for filming the rest of the interviews of the documentary.  Their goal is  $45,000 in 40 days.  And to add to the drama (Charles Mingus was nothing if not dramatic), if they do not reach their goal, they get nothing.

Mingus deserves the attention, the reverence, and the support.

  1. I hope they succeed with the funding. Although my first love is the jazz of the 20’s and 30’s, I rank Mingus’s Candid recordings and his live material with Eric Dolphy as some of the very finest jazz on record, music I never tire of listening to.
