5.0 out of 5 stars Mingus was up there with Mozart n' Miles... 1 Mar 2004
Format:Audio CD
I don't like to verbalise too much about music,
but I noticed no one had wrote a review of this.
I cant overemphasise the impact this album had on my life.
It contains some of the greatest examples of improvisational group playing ever recorded. Forget labels like Music, Art, Jazz, Funk, Soul, Rock,. This album contains some of the most emotionally resonant music you'll ever hear.

5.0 out of 5 stars Better Get THIS in Your Soul ! 4 Feb 2007
By KMorris
Format:Audio CD
It was probably Mingus' best group featuring Eric Dolphy (alto saxophone and bass clarinet), Booker Ervin (tenor saxophone), Ted Curson (trumpet), long-serving Dannie Richmond (drums) and the leader himself on bass who recorded this live festival gig in the summer of 1960.

The performance is bookended by extended rollicking gospel-tinged workouts of two of Mingus' greatest 'hits', "Wednesday Night Prayer Meeting" and "Better Git Hit in Your Soul". Along the way, Booker Ervin really takes it to church on a passionate reading of the mighty "Prayer for Passive Resistance" which is sold as a rock and the highlight for this listener ; while Dolphy (on bass clarinet) and Mingus himself get the most out of the musical question, "What Love?". Curson and Richmond's contributions are also a joy throughout the proceedings and special guest artist Bud Powell joins the band on piano for "I'll Remember April".

What we have here is a fine, spirited and jumping live recording. The CD version is good value for money as when this was originally issued on vinyl it was a two-record set and, it also stands up well as a fair introduction to the work of Charles Mingus. It will make you eager to search out more from this important composer and musician who, like Thelonious Monk, always commanded the employ of top and imaginative soloists.

Mingus, yeah! Better get THIS in your soul !

5.0 out of 5 stars Better Git This In Your Record Collection 28 Dec 2009
Format:Audio CD
I echo all the previous comments, this is an outstanding example of live jazz from one of Mingus's best bands. Blistering solos, driving rhythm section and original themes. Refreshes the parts other bands cannot reach BUT not for the faint hearted !
Rumour has it that somewhere exists a video of this concert - now that I would like to see.

By Jazzrook TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:Audio CD
This complete 1960 Antibes concert is probably one of Charles Mingus's most exciting live recordings which, inexplicably, was not released by ATLANTIC until after his death in 1979. The music is uncommonly fiery and passionate with inspired playing from Mingus(bass & piano), Eric Dolphy(alto sax, bass-clarinet), Booker Ervin(tenor), Ted Curson(trumpet) and the ever-present Dannie Richmond(drums). The great bop pianist Bud Powell makes a guest appearance on one track, 'I'll Remember April'.
Small group jazz doesn't get any more powerful or moving than this and 'Mingus At Antibes' deserves to be included in any modern jazz collection.
