More Penguin Pontifications

Mal Waldron on Charles Mingus: Mingus had this idea that you didn't have to hit the note dead centre, like a bullseye, but you could place your notes round about it, inside the concentric rings but not bang in the middle. It was liberating, though not so easy for the piano player. From The Penguin Jazz Guide - The History of the Music in 1001 Albums. ISBN 978-0-141-04831-4. Lance.
