With its striking blend of "jazz" and "non–jazz" instrumentation, the Mingus Orchestra is a showcase for its namesake's fearless engagement with classical, "Third Stream," and other sounds. "Gospel fervor, flamenco tinges, fog–bound moodiness, bebop complexity, the joy and despair of the blues, Schoenber­gian atonality, were all bound together by Mingus. A driven skipper, sometimes more crazed than Ahab, he conducted from the bridge, shouting praise, condemnation, and love." – Doug Ramsey in Jazz Masters: Reflections on the Music & Some of Its Makers (1989, University of Arkansas Press)
