This week on Night Lights it's "Word From Mingus," a program of Charles Mingus' 1950s spoken-word collaborations with poet Langston Hughes, monologuist Jean Shepherd, and actor Melvin Stewart. We'll also hear Mingus' own performance of his piece "Chill of Death," written when Mingus was a teenager in the late 1930s and recorded for release on the 1972 album LET MY CHILDREN HEAR MUSIC. You can listen to the program live this Saturday night on WFIU at 11:05 p.m. (8:05 California time, 10:05 Chicago time) here, or listen to it in the Night Lights archives, where it will be posted Monday afternoon.

 

Next week: "The Late Miss D." Dinah Washington's Roulette recordings.
