C'est, heurté aux refus et vexations, à la dépossession, comprendre très vite, si l'on n'accepte pas de se plier aux codes esthétiques dominants, si l'on est porteur d'un monde aussi neuf et intransigeant que l'oeuvre mingusien, que l'on ne pourra jamais vivre correctement de sa musique, qu'il faudra au contraire trouver tous les moyens de survivre - jusqu'à l'exploitation d'autrui - pour lui permettre de se faire entendre...
