Songs of Our Lives #3: Eric Mingus

For this episode of Songs of Our Lives, I invite Eric Mingus on the show. Eric’s newest album, Lessons From My Father, is tremendous and moving. We talk about his research on the Mingus Mill in North Carolina and collaborating with Yo-Yo Ma before diving in to memories of his father playing in the house, how far ahead of his time Miles was, The Band’s ability to make someone else’s songs their own, The Boss’s creeper side, and so much more!

Listen to all of Eric’s picks HERE
