Charles Mingus: postman

Yes, Charles Mingus was 1/2 of yesterday's 2-part Trivia answer. Mingus was the postman-turned bass player that Red Norvo (part 1) wanted to find:

Yesterday's Trivia: "When the trio came back from Hawaii, I remembered a bass player who had subbed for me in San Francisco when I was working a tour with Billie Holiday.

That was really when it started to go."
