5.0 out of 5 stars Feeling good never felt better, 28 May 2008
By 
Bm Ballin "Dr Rat" (Birmingham, UK) - See all my reviews

This review is from: Cumbia & Jazz Fusion (Audio CD)
This is absolute high-octane feelgood music. The title track gets my five year old daughters dancing around the room with wild abandon [they call it 'bird jazz' because of the slow build up of whistles, drums and bass at the beginning]. It takes you on an amazing jazz journey from swing to latin to avant garde to blues and back again, with that characteristic Mingus stop-start element very much in evidence. The two piano pieces are a delight, too: Mingus is an under-rated pianist, and very much on percussive, creative form here.

5.0 out of 5 stars Swinging Hard!, 4 Mar. 2002
By 
A. D. R. MARKS "adrmarks" (Warwickshire) - See all my reviews
(REAL NAME)   
This review is from: Cumbia & Jazz Fusion (Audio CD)
This CD is a bass players masterclass. Mingus manages to lead the band through a hard-swinging adrenaline rush which almost leaves the listener breathless. If you like 'Tequila Moods'/'New Tequila Moods' and are looking for a disc to complement it then look no further. If you've never heard Mingus before and are looking for somewhere to start, then this is as good a place as any - come see what the fuss is about. Oh, and don't let the presence of a mere two tracks put you off - you get more than your money's worth here. Enjoy.
