I still remember the moment vividly. I had just begun posting videos in my Journey Through The Real Book series on YouTube, and was several tunes into the letter A. Someone left a comment on one of the videos that said, “I can’t wait until you get to ‘Ecclusiastics!'”
Two things stood out in my mind as I read that:
1. This person must really be a big Mingus fan to even know about a tune like “Ecclusiastics,” and
2. The letter E is a long way away!
Well, over 2 years later, the big moment has arrived….
“Ecclusiastics” is here!
