Mingus, Charles definitions

Britannica Concise

U.S. bassist, composer, and bandleader, one of the most important and colorful figures in modern jazz. Born in Nogales, Ariz., Mingus played in the groups of L. Hampton, D. Ellington, and Red Norvo, ultimately working with many of the innovators of bebop. In 1953 he organized the Jazz Workshop ensemble, which played a spirited combination of loosely arranged passages and improvisation, incorporating elements of the blues and free jazz. As a pioneering bandleader and virtuoso bassist, Mingus remained an uncompromising and innovative force in jazz for the rest of his career.
