In Mingus’s autobiography Beneath the Underdog his mother was described as “the daughter of an Englishman and a Chinese woman”, and his father was the son “of a black farm worker and a Swedish woman”. His mother allowed only church-related music in their home, but Mingus developed an early love for other music, especially Duke Ellington. He studied trombone, and later cello, although he was unable to follow the cello professionally because, at the time, it was nearly impossible for a black musician to make a career of classical music, and the cello was not yet accepted as a jazz instrument. Due to a poor education, the young Mingus could not read musical notation quickly enough to join the local youth orchestra. This had a serious impact on his early musical experiences, leaving him feeling ostracized from the classical music world. Much of the cello technique he learned was applicable to double bass when he took up the instrument in high school.
