: Mingus always played with really loud bands and he always cut through and had a powerful, full, and rich sound. Anybody out there know how he did it? I'm guessing no, but who knows. Thanks, Michael

The last time I saw Mingus live was at the Jazz Workshop in SF (1970). I couldn't hear the bass from the bar so I mosied my way to a table closer to the bandstand. He wasn't using an amp or a mike. I still couldn't hear him, nor could anyone else and no one dared to tell him so! Al
