I think that the secret of Mingus success, one secret, is his understanding of the timbre of many instruments. To be an excellent composer one has to understand timbre intimately, but Mingus manipulates and pullulates sounds. It was his idea to bring the bass into the horn section, to mix and match instruments and to never limit an instrument to one particular range of sounds or geographical placement both on paper and in the orchestra. "Let My Children Hear Music" explores this new possibility, redefining the geography of the orchestra and rupturing traditional sound. But there is always so much beauty involved!
