  39. There is a continuity between Goethe’s ( 1973-ed) Faust Part One and Two- Harmondsworth: Penguin) and Thomas Mann’s (1976 ed- Doctor Faustus- Harmondsworth: Penguin that cuts to the heart of modernism and progress; there is a return almost to the medieval in Isaac Bashevis Singer- see (1984) The Collected Stories, Harmondsworth: Penguin. And a politicization of the figure in Klaus Mann’s (1983 edition) Mephisto, Harmondsworth: Penguin and in Ngugi was Th’ongo’s work (fascism/colonialism) . Rushdie’s Shaitan is a very distant relative

  83. Charles Mingus, Biography

  84. Ornette Coleman’s 1959-61 revolutionary period has been collected in Beauty is A Rare Thing, Rhino/Atlantic Records, a six CD compilation that has everything up to Free Jazz the most important collective improvisation experiment.

  85. Howling Wolf’s and Muddy Waters’ Chicago sound is well-known- listen also to Professor Longhair’s New Orleans Piano, was recorded in 1953 and re-issued by Atlantic Records in 1989- it is a fine example of “gumbo” styles from the area.

  86. Frank Zappa’s (1969) Uncle Meat, Rykodisc Records is a good starting point;Captain Beefheart’s (1967) Safe as Milk,Buddah Records and (1969) Troutmask Replica, Reprise Records and Tom Waits (1978) Blue Valentine, Asylum Records and (1983) Swordfishtrombones, Island would also do.

  87. Charles Mingus (1956), Pithicanthropus Erectus, Atlantic Records; (1957), New Tijuana Moods, Bluebird Records; (1959), Mingus Ah Um, Columbia Records.

  88. Ornette Coleman’s (1975) Dancing in Your Head, A&M Records is an example of this turn- a rather unsuccessful one. Haden, Cherry, Redman and Blackwell fared better with their (1979) Old and New Dreams, ECM Records and (1980) Playing, ECM Records.

  89. Charlie Haden’s work with the Music Liberation Orchestra which involved Carla Bley as an arranger has been the most impressive of the efforts; for later efforts listen to, The Ballad of the Fallen, ECM Records, 1982; and Dream Keeper, Verve Records, 1990.

  90. Listen to Don Cherry, (1978) Codona, ECM Records with Colin Walcott on sitar and tabla and Nana Vasconcelos, berimbau, percussion and vocals; or, (88-90), Multi-Kulti, A&M Records.
