Mingus on ‘awesome simplicity’

Real Creativity

A friend of mine posted a link to the brilliant short documentary on Radio Four where Courney Pine and other jazz musicians spoke about the incredible and groundbreaking album ‘A Love Supreme’ on the 50th Annivversity of the recording. See the link below to watch on BBC iPlayer Radio on catch up if you are in the UK. 

I recently re-listened to this amazing recording and I was reminded me of one of his great quotes which I’ve added to the picture above. 

“Making the simple complicated is commonplace; making the complicated simple, awesomely simple, that’s creativity.”

If you’d like to catch the BBC programme here on catch up, follow the link below.
