Charles Mingus - Triumph of the Underdog

Charles Mingus - Triumph of the Underdog

Available on Prime Video
Don McGlynn's uncompromising and soulful documentary look at the tumultuous life of musician and rebel Charles Mingus is simply fascinating. Mingus said of himself \I am half black man, half yellow man, but I claim to be a Negro. I am Charles Mingus, the famed jazz musician--but not famed enough to make a living in America.
