Charles Mingus ~ Better Git It In Your Soul

Have been listening non-stop to this track by the formidable Charles Mingus (April 22, 1922 ~ January 5, 1979), a double bass jazz pioneer, composer, bandleader and activist...also known as "The Angry Man of Jazz" due to his high expectations of his fellow band members and temperament. "Better Git In Your Soul" is also memorable for the numerous "yelps" and "shouts" which could be audibly heard coming from the background, courtesy of Mingus himself.
