Originally studying the trombone and cello, Mingus was a t who transitioned to the double bass, which eventually became his musical motif. Mingus was widely noted to be a phenomenon on the double bass, eventually touring with Louis Armstrong, Lionel Hampton and Duke Ellington before crafting his own compositions and leading his own bands. Mingus embodied hard work and self-development, resulting in a body of work surpassing over 250 releases. He poured his heart and his soul into his craft, creating a varied and sublime list of releases.
