Instrumentation: Fixed Media

Originally published on on February 8, 2008:

Fight is this week's collaboration, continuing Boris's series of dances for Black History Month. Today's piece samples from bassist/composer Charles Mingus's Haitian Fight Song. If you are unfamiliar with his work, I'd recommend that you start with these albums:

— Blues and Roots
— Mingus Ah Um

His autobiography, Beneath the Underdog is also well worth a look.
