Frankie Dunlop on Mingus: It’s the Principle of the Thing

SKF NOTE: One of my favorite moments of my interviews with the great drummer Frankie Dunlop. Listeners can hear Frankie’s impersonation of Charles Mingus as Frankie describes a scene from a rehearsal for Mingus’s Tijuana Moods album.

The scene opens with pianist Bill Triglia using Mingus’s phone without asking Mingus. Younger viewers should remember this scene took place in 1957, long before cell phones, and long before cordless phones.
