One of Charles Mingus' most ambitious efforts and among the finest albums from the last stage of his career, this 1972 recording features extended compositions for jazz orchestra. It's serious, sophisticated, modernist music that still swings hard.
Soloists include Charles McPherson, James Moody, and Sir Roland Hanna, with arrangements and orchestrations beautifully handled by Sy Johnson. Mingus called this his personal favorite among all his recordings.
