What My World Sounds Like: Mingus Big Band – “Moanin'”

I’ve been a fan of jazz composer, bassist, and pianist Charles Mingus for some time now, but I’ve just discovered a new song via the Mingus Big Band, a group of New York musicians who specialize in Mingus’ compositions.

“Moanin'” is from the 1993 Nostalgia in Times Square. Listen to this song! It enraptures you. Jazz requires attention. Quintessential cool.
