Nearly four decades after his death, Charles Mingus Jr. remains one of the least understood and most recognized jazz composers and musicians of our time. Mingus's ideas about music, racial identity, and masculinity-as well as those of other individuals in his circle, like Celia Mingus, Hazel Scott, and Joni Mitchell-challenged jazz itself as a model of freedom, inclusion, creativity, and emotional expressivity. Drawing on archival records, published memoirs, and previously conducted interviews, The Kind of Man I Am uses Mingus as a lens through which to craft a gendered cultural history of postwar jazz culture. This book challenges the persisting narrative of Mingus as jazz's "Angry Man" by examining the ways the language of emotion has been used in jazz as shorthand for competing ideas about masculinity, authenticity, performance, and authority.

"In her fascinating book...[t]he author examines many aspects of Mingus' art and influence, from his collaboration with Joni Michel...to [his] dark and twisty recollections of growing up in South Central Los Angeles as a shy, light-skinned son of a tough, Caucasian-looking Army father, and his struggles as a black musician."--Eugene Holley Jr., Downbeat"An absorbing, timely, and indeed important book, The Kind of Man I Am introduces a fresh model for thinking about jazz and gender. This is a book that will help rejuvenate the field, pushing its boundaries and opening up new avenues of inquiry."--John Gennari, associate professor of English and critical race and ethnic studies, University of Vermont "In her fascinating book[t]he author examines many aspects of Mingus' art and influence, from his collaboration with Joni Michelto [his] dark and twisty recollections of growing up in South Central Los Angeles as a shy, light-skinned son of a tough, Caucasian-looking Army father, and his struggles as a black musician."--Eugene Holley Jr., Downbeat "This is a wonderful book, by far the most sophisticated study to date on Mingus, it is both clearly written and a joy to read."--Eric Lewis, Cercles
