Echoes of the Town Hall concert and perhaps complimentary.The bonus being the Mingus piano,why did he not make more of his wonderful piano playing,enjoy what we have.

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.

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.
