Impresario Hal Willner pulls off a neat hat trick by giving you two tribute albums for the price of one. Willner gets such artists as Elvis Costello, Robbie Robertson, Chuck D., and Henry Rollins to perform the beatnik-styled items in Charles Mingus' extraordinary jazz songbook while backing them with the freaky instruments created by the avant-gardist Harry Partch.
