SKU: HH3031CD Category:


Following his relentless creativity in the 1950s and ’60s, Charles Mingus was slowing down by the early ’70s, having combated financial hardship and health issues in recent years. In 1971 he served as the Slee Professor of Music at the State University of New York at Buffalo, and performed intermittently. This superb set was taped at Boston’s Jazz Workshop that October, for broadcast on WBCN-FM, and captures him in fiery form, backed by John Foster (piano), Joe Gardner (trumpet), Hamiet “Bunny” Bluiett (baritone sax), and Roy Brooks (drums). The complete broadcast is presented here in digitally remastered sound with background notes and images.
