"Mingus's audiences never knew quite what they were going to get, and this kept them coming…His music, which drew omnivorously on the blues, gospel, Dixieland, Duke Ellington, bebop, and classical music, among much else, was similarly unpredictable. It blurred the boundaries between improvisation and composition, often ignoring standard form, and was famous for its rapid shifts in mood and tempo." – Christopher Carroll, "Mingus: The Chaos and the Magic," The New York Review of Books (2.12.2013 http://www.cityguideny.com/eventinfo.cfm?id=354017 Jazz Standard Jazz Standard
