Mingus had a temper

today i was sitting at a bookstore in oaktown, ear hustlin to some old cats reminisce about the good ole jazz club days… this is the SI i learned:

1) Monk was moody, sometimes a little macho– but he love watchin Jimmy Smith tho– he’d get all soft watching him
2) Sometimes ‘Trane and Monk didn’t get along
3) We all know Miles had a temper
4) oh but Mingus, Mingus would wreck the whole club– he’d throw tantrums all the time!
