Charles Mingus Hazel Scott ‘A Foggy Day’

Watch this video clip with early Charlie Mingus playing the accoustic bass in the trio of femal singer, piano player and band leader Hazel Scott. In this cover version of the jazz standard ‘A Foggy Day’ Charles Mingus plays a straight forward walking bass. These were the beginning days of the great bass player who soon formed his own group and entered the field of free jazz. Charles Mingus has formed a lot of goups ranging from trios and quartets to big band orchestras. This video here is more of a documental but you still can enjoy the music. This seems to be recorded at a tv studio set.
