5.0 out of 5 stars Great Latin Jazz, 2 May 2011
This review is from: Pensativo (Audio CD)
I always wondered what this band sounded like when Bass Player magazine used to sing its praises back in the 90s. It was worth the wait. They are incredible!

5.0 out of 5 stars Classic Mingus, 4 Sep 2009
This review is from: Mingus at Antibes (Audio CD)
This is classic Mingus. The live recording quality is amazing considering how long ago the album was made. Some of the music may be a bit 'out' for some tastes, the conversation between Mingus and Dolphy on 'What Love' where they are exploring the tonsl palletes of their instruments is a particularly heavy part!

5.0 out of 5 stars Classic Mingus, 4 Sep 2009
This review is from: Pithecanthropus Erectus (Audio CD)
This is a great Mingus album at the turning point between his more standard material and his later suite type compositions (a la Black Saint and The Sinner Lady). All the music on here is amazing. Essential Mingus!

5.0 out of 5 stars Extremely deep indian classical music, 8 Oct 2006
I thoroughly reccomend this CD to anyone who has been listening to indian classical music for a little while and wants to know how deep the music can go. The hour long performance of raga todi has to be listened to with upmost concentration and focus to gain real rewards from listening to it. I promise you that if you do this (maybe take the phone of the hook/make sure the kids are asleep/burn some incense etc) you will be taken on a completely incredible journey.
