      • Great Master's portrait. I like how you composed the left
      profile and just "a piece' of the instrument is shown....
      Impressive and super-expressive!

      Ah, Mingus.

      Very good! Mingus used the same instrument in Oslo 1970. I think I have read somewhere that his widow Sue gave this beautiful violin-shaped bass to the hungarian doublebass virtuoso Aladar Pege (1939 - 2006), who also toured with Mingus Dynasti.
