Mingus Big Band: Celebrating 10 Years at Jazz Standard
"Charles Mingus was a pre–Bird musician...in his love of pure emotion as exemplified in the blues, the church, and the polyphony of New Orleans; in his willingness to embrace the full panoply of jazz styles; in his absorption of the colors, styles, subtleties, and charms of Ellington and Tatum.
