My music is as varied as my feelings are, or the world is, and one composition or one kind of composi­tion expresses only part of the total world of my music…The greatness of jazz is that it is an art of the moment. It is so particularly through improvisation but also, in my music, through the successive relation of composition to another." (Charles Mingus, from his liner notes for Atlantic LP Blues & Roots)
