Scorcese, Lebowitz, Mingus, EKE

6 posts in this topic

In the 2nd episode of the Scorcese/Lebowitz series Pretend it's a City she tells a couple of great stories about Mingus one of which involves Ellington.  BTW There's a clip of Mingus playing "Secret Love". Did he ever record that song? 

(When I searched Discogs for "Mingus-- Secret Love" I got the movie it's from.  When I tried the same thing in Amazon I got a bunch of sex toys.)

Seems that tune is only recorded at this performance at Lennie's by Mingus . . . ?

Amazon must work differently for you, or you put the word 'sex' into your search.

No, I just put in "Mingus, Secret Love". That usually works for finding music tracks.  (Though maybe "Secret Love" was in quotes and maybe a colon or dash after Mingus.)

I had to see what I would get but mostly self-published erotica, and no toys.

Going back to Mingus :)

This is a VIDEO clip of Mingus playing Secret Love? I think I remember some footage from Lennie's in the Mingus film. Could it be the whole concert was filmed?
