The goal is to raise $45,000 in 40 days until 18 dec.
To find more info about the documentary go to

"A grandson’s journey through the lore and legends of jazz history to find his grandfather, Charles Mingus he never knew
... . ...
There are many perspectives of my grandfather that have not had a place in defining his legacy…
I am seeking them out to understand him beyond myth, fable or a singular vision of his work.
We have begun to create a platform where we can use the ideals of jazz in the art of making a film"

Charles Mingus - Right Now (1964)

Charles Mingus - Right Now: Live At The Jazz Workshop (1964)
Label: OJC
MP3 @192kbs : 67mb

Recorded live at The Jazz Workshop in San Francisco, CA on June 2 & 3, 1964

Charles Mingus bass John Handy alto sax (#1) Clifford Jordan tenor sax Jane Getz piano Dannie Richmond drums

1. New Fables 23:18
2. Meditation (For A Pair Of Wire Cutters) 23:42

Soon after Charles Mingus finished touring Europe with his band (the unit that featured Eric Dolphy), he recorded this CD, performed live at The Jazz Workshop in San Francisco. With tenor-saxophonist Clifford Jordan and drummer Dannie Richmond still in the group but Jane Getz replacing pianist Jaki Byard and altoist John Handy filling in for Dolphy on one song, the band performs excellent versions of "Meditations on Integration" and "New Fables," both of which are over 23 minutes long. Although not up to the passionate level of the Mingus-Dolphy Quintet, this underrated unit holds its own.
