The great Bassist and band leader Charles Mingus cut some of his most exciting and rewarding recordings in 1960.

Taped during the apex of Mingus' creativity, shortly after masterstroke Mingus Ah Um, just before his brilliant Oh Yeah, and in the same year as the classic Blues & Roots, this incredible session showcase such stars as Eric Dolphy, Roy Eldridge, and Tommy Flanagan.

Mingus' arrangements are, as always, top notch with an unparalleled understanding of space and melody, and the playing is without doubt up to his standards.

Mingus is one of the greatest jazz minds of the 20th Century and these sessions are another fine example of his genius.
