Untitled Percussion Composition


This composition was from the original 1958 version of John Cassavetes's film Shadows. After three poorly received screenings, the film was radically reworked and rewritten. During this process most of Mingus's music was removed. Shafi Hadi did the soundtrack for the 1959 version of the film. The 1959 version, the only version currently available, lists "Shafi Hadi - Saxaphone Solos" [sic] and "Charles Mingus - Additional Music."  -CD
