Format: Audio CD
'East Coasting' is an overlooked album by the great bassist/composer Charles Mingus(1922-79) which was originally recorded for the Bethlehem label on August 16, 1957 shortly after his more famous 'Tijuana Moods' RCA sessions. Mingus assembled a wonderfully empathetic sextet including Jimmy Knepper(trombone), Shafi Hadi(alto & tenor sax), Clarence Shaw(trumpet), Dannie Richmond(drums) and the young pianist Bill Evans on one of his earliest recordings.
It must have been quite a fraught session with each track needing several takes(at least 16 for 'Conversation!) but the music comes across as subtle, sensitive and emotional. The marvellous, boppish 'East Coasting' makes an excellent companion album to Mingus's Latin-influenced 'Tijuana Moods'(see my review).

I own all the often cited Mingus classics but this little gem passed me by until now. Reflective, soulful and very beautiful, with the wonderful Bill Evans on keyboards. I'm off to research other Mingus albums which have flown under the radar, any suggestions ?
