Respect The Architect

Sunday November 6th 2022

charles mingus skateboard graphic art

Charles Mingus was a jazz legend who helped to break down the restrictions that existed for people whose artistic expression was called jazz. He was a master bassist with an expressive style that had to fight and claw its way to respectability; he created challenging and emotional performances in venues where the ring of the cash register competed with his music during performances; and he developed musical techniques that had an immediate impact on American music, despite never being invited to fill any academic position. All of these paradoxes are brought together by his standing as a jazz hero.

Showing our appreciation for jazz music and it's creative influence on skateboarding over the decades.
