I was going to write this week's post about Charles Mingus. I tend to forget that in this digital age I can go listen to nearly anything ever recorded by anyone I ever liked listening to. For decades now there's been one Mingus record in my collection, and it was pretty much was the Mingus record as far as I was concerned. But about a week and a half ago, in the middle of the night, I finally thought to go look up what other records he made around the same time. I quickly discovered there were at least three or four other albums I was probably going to love as much as Mingus Ah Um, classic though it might be. I expect I'll talk about more about Mingus at some point, but to paraphrase Bruce Willis' character in Bandits, "Well...we are guitar players..." So it would probably behoove me to at least talk about guitar music once in a while.
