Charles Mingus And Friends In Concert
Released: Feb 1972
Bill Cosby emceed this concert celebrating Mingus and his work, and the musicians spreading the cheer are incredible: Dizzy Gillespie, Lee Konitz, James Moody, Gerry Mulligan, Gene Ammons and Mingus himself. It's chaotic and under-rehearsed (you can't get a group like this together for long), but also joyous and liberating. A special night captured forever.
