4.0 out of 5 stars Mingus O'clock, 3 Jun 2005
I'm a big fan of double bass, and I expected loads from this album. It delivered, but it's weaved in to the rest of the band, who are all genii. A drummer friend of mine complained that, whilst technically impressive, the rythm section tends to be very broken up, and at times (if you're not in the right mood) this album can be hard to listen to.
This is nit-picking though. This album contains some really quality jazz that will have you grooving into the early hours.
Being drunk is practically a requirement however.
