Mingus Plays Piano

I picked this record up years ago at Kim’s video. It’s pretty much just 11 cuts of Mingus screwing around on the piano. It’s fucking genius. I listen to this record sometimes and actually question weither I even have any business fucking with this music thing. It’s that good.

I mean, the guy is a fucking bass player for fucks sake. Most people I play the album for are like, “Wait, But doesn’t Mingus plays bass??!? HOLY SHIT!!!”

This is one of those jazz records you HAVE TO OWN. Yeah sure, keep a copy of “Kind of Blue” around so you can look bourgie and impress suburban chicks and shit but if you wanna a serious EXPERIENCE, turn out all the lights in your apartment and listen to this record.

It actually feels like bol is sitting in the room with you playing the piano.
