This album shows what Charlie Mingus could achieve. It sounds aggressive and exciting. The free solos are actually disciplined and not too long for their content, even though the tracks are mostly quite long the quality of improvisation makes them feel compact and the whole album swings. It seems to me that the combo knew each other well and knew to how pass the solo baton before their inspriation had ceased. It also sounds like it has the strucure of an Ellington small group but with a more exciting and immediate sense of purpose. It is much more satisfying too my ears than the contemporary Free Jazz of Ornette Coleman

OK, it had some competition in 1959, but this holds its own. Some crackers in here.

This is wonderful collection of Charles Mingus' jazz music, which is quite varied in style and sound between the various tracks. if you like traditional jazz sound you will like this album.

The title says it all. However, for a 3-track recording, I would have expected a 3 channel playback option like Time Out and Kind of Blue from the same Columbia SACD series and recorded in the same NY studio in 1959.
