The Baron Mingus
One of the most riveting artworks I've crafted.
If you don't know about Charles Mingus aka "The Baron", this piece embodies his spirit and his individualistic approach to jazz composition.
The bass sound is so cool, but oh so tricky.
The swing, values, phrasing, rhythm, ghost notes are the main ingredients of the groove.
A black & white masterpiece: complex, elegant and simple as a bass line. Ready to go in its new home.
The white frame gives a new dimension to my pieces.
Simplicity is the ultimate sophistication.
