    Unreal. Thanks for the background Pdna2 both here and on Myself When I am Real.

    This is actually a transcription of Mingus' piano improv, Myself When I Am Real, which is on Mingus Plays Piano. They are one and the same "compositionally" (quotes because it was improvised!) It would be a real achievement to compose this with real care over time. But to think that this is the product of an improv is truly awe-inspiring.

    Mingus-- one of the few great composers in Jazz. Up there with Duke and Strayhorn!

    This entire album is a MUST listen. Mingus wrote that he felt it was one of his most fully realized works, which I suppose explains the title.
