Caught the CMU jazz band playing in Maggie Mo. I must have looked like a total freak standing there with my ear glued to the door trying to remember what the name of the piece they were playing was. I only figured it out once I got back to my computer and went through my Mingus mp3s — I was sure it was him, at least, since it sounded like it, and I think the guy who's the director is a huge Mingus fan. Turns out it was "Theme For Lester Young".

Ya. They played Haitian Fight Song last year at Carnival.

I remember once they did some show entirely dedicated to Mingus, too. Not that I'm complaining.
