I doubt music can get any better
The bass intro is so soulful with all those blue-notes, Mingus pushing the pentatonic scale to its limits. This piece is the definition of the Blues.
THIS CUT JUST JUMPS OUT AT YOU,YOU CAN FEEL THE BASS IN YOUR SOUL. BRAVO MR MINGUS
His style of playing bass with powerful tone and pulsating rhythm picks up the sound of the instrument over the general sound of the orchestra
II BS is Mingus's own, faster, rerecording check it out!
Charlie, my hero!
tell me this was sampled in "I'm the Man" in Jeru's verse at the end :O
Mingus is Genius!!
Jazz at its best  Flows and rumbles dazzlingly
Jazz at its best.
6:39 -- one of the greatest moments in music
Oh my god, the way this song just explodes out at you near the beginning blows my fucking mind. How is it so good?
Does this song contain the best riff ever written? (can't say for sure, haven't heard every song yet)
I loooooooooooovvvvvvvvvvveeeeeeeeeeee Charles!!
I have to admit, I much prefer the faster version of this, II B.S. Fantastically groovy track, though!
Mingus Mingus Mingus Mingus ....
This and the re recording as IIBS on 4Mingus are incredible. I may actually prefer the latter which sounds absolutely crazy.
Greatest. Song. Ever.

If you like this, listen to the redone version titled II B.S. It blows me away every time.
The bassline in this song is out of this world.
one of the best, anyway.
Best bassline ever.
