“A remarkable element in Mingus’ influence on his sidemen is his capacity to generate and sustain a fierce collective swing which is at the same time both loose and what I can best describe as spontaneously exclamatory. The seeming paradox of Mingus is that so forceful a personality can create situations which so irresistibly propel his sidemen to be so fully themselves.” – Nat Hentoff, from his liner notes for the 1963 Impulse! LP Mingus Mingus Mingus Mingus Mingus.
