It's all about the music, dude! Sit down, relax and listen to some tunes.

Mingus used to admonish the audience not to applaud until the end of the piece.

Some of his tunes/charts were pretty long (10-30 minutes), with multiple long solos and he didn't want the usual jazz audience habit of applauding after each solo to interrupt the music.

Not being of Mingus' stature, I've never asked an audience to refrain from applauding any time they get the urge :-)
