At long last!,
This review is from: Me, Myself And Eye (Audio CD)
It took a long time for this album to be reissued on CD; it was one of the first Mingus albums that I bought, and it still strikes me as exciting music, with all the musicians playing for all their worth. Indeed, many of them have not played better. Although Mingus does not play himself on the record, his imprimatur is still there. Despite the fact that this album may not reach the heights of Black Saint/ Blues and Roots/ Ah Hum/ Pithecanthropus (and my favourite East Coasting), this should be an essential CD for all Mingus fans, and I'm sure it will spend as much time on my CD player as my old vinyl version was spun.
