Jazz Purists: Yes, I know this will piss you off. Charles Mingus was more talented...
Than Coltrane or Miles....


yes, I love Coltrane

If I were stranded on a desert island with only one album, other than Mingus, it would be "A Love Supreme"

yes, I love Miles

If I were stranded in a banana republic with only one CD and in a non-AC hotel room, I would want either Bitches Brew or Kind of Blue.

But Mingus....

Mijn god!

This is just genius where he, and his band go...

Any album, Ah-Um or, well anything else he did!

4. but what about Monk?
:D No, I agree that Mingus was simply an amazing player and composer on many fronts. But to put him ahead of Coltrane and Miles? Not so sure.
