Great piece by the great bassist – Charlie Mingus. What a groove, watch your legs as they start jumping everywhere… It was good bumping into it last evening driving home. Maybe that’s why the return to the bass motive after a long improvisation session is the part I liked the best. A good refresher for a long day…
“Haitian Fight Song” was released on “The Clown” (Atlantic Records, 1957). I prefer the faster version below but that’s just me.
