Big Band Charlie Mingus

"As a composer and as a leader Mingus fused the players--not only himself-- with the music.  He had taught himself total immersion into music, and by example and sometimes by insistence, he taught others. He taught the players in this band, and that's why they are able to do justice to his phenomenal man's works that abound with so infectious a  life force."  (from the CD's liner notes by Nat Hentoff)

Charlie Mingus and his music on Volume 1 and Volume 2.
