Gatefold exact repro reissue, originally released in 1976. Recorded at the Antibes Jazz Festival, July 13, 1960. Mingus plays with Ted Curson, Eric Dolphy, Booker Ervin, Dannie Richmond and Bud Powell. "During 1960, bassist Charles Mingus led one of his finest bands, a pianoless quartet with Eric Dolphy (on alto, flute, and bass clarinet), trumpeter Ted Curson, and drummer Dannie Richmond. For this live concert, the band is augmented by the great tenor Booker Ervin for some stirring music. All of the music is memorable: 'Wednesday Night Prayer Meeting,' 'Prayer for Passive Resistance,' 'What Love,' 'Folk Forms No. 1,' and 'Better Get Hit in Yo' Soul.' The immortal pianist Bud Powell sits in on a fine version of 'I'll Remember April' and Dolphy and Ervin in particular generate a great deal of heat during some of their solos." -- All Music Guide
