BBC Proms 53


Recommended Posts

Hadnt heard the Towner piece. Thank you :)


The first inroad to Mingus for me was through Davy Graham



That album is very eclectic. With his own take on Morrocan music, Jazz from Arr Blakey (Moanin) and Mingus. Trad folk and blues tunes and early Dylan.


Leavin' Blues


Sally Free And Easy

Black Is The Colour Of My True Love's Hair

Rock Me Baby

Seven Gypsies

Ballad Of The Sad Young Men


Skillet (Good 'N Greasy)

Ain't Nobody's Business What I Do

Maajun (A Taste Of Tangier)

I Can't Keep From Crying Sometimes

Don't Think Twice, It's All Right

My Babe

Goin' Down Slow

Thanks for posting, I must watch these at some point along with the Glass/ Shankar stuff Rabs mentioned.


Regarding Mingus, if you haven't heard The Black Saint and the Sinner Lady you must. I would say it's in my top 5 favourite jazz records of all time (if not the finest). Absolutely incredible album, though I do love many of his others.

Last nights broadcast of the BBC Proms was terrific. It featured the music of Charles Mingus. So a lot of young jazz players augmented the chamber ensemble.


I was surprised to see the intro to 'Goodbye Pork Pie Hat' played on a Gretch hollowbody.





For anyone interested... Theres a cool page here with 20 highlights from this years proms with video or audio of each..
