A bigger than life icon, Charles Mingus is considered one of the greatest jazz musicians and composers in history with a career spanning three decades and collaborations with other jazz legends such as Louis Armstrong, Duke Ellington, Charlie Parker, Dizzy Gillespie and Herbie Hancock. With jazz music on the wane commercially back in 1974, Atlantic Records decided to release 'Mingus at Carnegie Hall' with just two encore songs featuring guest artists Rahsaan Roland Kirk, Charles McPherson, and John Handy. But lo and behold, discovered among the many rows of tapes at the Warner Vaults, were several analog reels containing 74 minutes of previously unreleased live performances of the Charles Mingus Group featuring Don Pullen, Jon Faddis, George Adams, Hamiet Bluiett and Dannie Richmond at Carnegie Hall on January 19, 1974. After almost 50 years, jazz fans will get the special opportunity to hear the complete concert as it was originally played and in the correct sequence, by this ground-breaking group of musicians. This deluxe 3LP set has been mastered/lacquered and sourced from the original tapes for maximum fidelity, pressed on 180g vinyl and includes previously unseen photos from original photographer Gosta Peterson, as well as new liner notes from jazz historian and producer, Michael Cuscuna.
