I saw Charles Mingus a couple of time in the 70s. On one gig Ed 
Blackwell played drums. Mingus announced a piece that included Blackwell 
on the saw, he gave a litle lecture first on how it's a real musical 
instrument and we should respect it. I don't recall the piece he played, 
other than that it was pleasant sounding music, nothing atonal or 
especially far out.

Mingus was very serious about it all, he didn't want people thinking it 
was a comedic thing.
