PITHOCANTHROPUS ERECTUS:Jan 1956.The title number, conceived as a jazz poem of the first man to stand erect. Divided into evolutionary concepts. Introduced by Jackie McLean's beautiful alto introduction it drives through group improvisation culminating in cry of the horns suggesting the demise of modern man.'A Foggy Day' -retitled 'In San Francisco' has a delightful melody of a Gershwin reworking with sound effects. 'Profile of Jackie' is brief but is testament to the altoist with Monterose (tenor sax) and Mingus in background sparking the piece. (He later had more than a spark with McLean). As a tribute to a musician this is up with the best. 'Love Chant' is a longer more basic run out with the horns in fine fettle driven by Mingus's bass with Monterose and Waldron (piano) playing probing solos.
THE CLOWN:Feb/Mar 1957. Mingus's effort to "try and please everyone". 'Haitian Fight Song' culminates in a huge swinging drive between Jimmy Knepper on trombone and Shafi Hadi on alto. 'Blue Cee' is a dedication to Mingus's wife. It is a broody number with Mingus at his most expressive with the ever present Danny Richmond on drums. 'Reincarnation Of A Lovebird is a gorgeous honour to Charlie Parker with Hadi playing emotionally in his own style.
BLUES AND ROOTS:Feb 59. Another classic.Read more ›
