Originally released in 1962. "Performed before a live audience at New York's Club Bohemia on December 23, 1955, this album contains some of Mingus' more adventuresome and jubilant works. Some of the tracks are arresting enough to require special comment. Generally, one is struck by the evocative, turbulent piano of Mal Waldron, particularly in 'Work Song' and 'Jump Monk.' As a bassist, Mingus remains unbelievable. No one can approach him as a technician or as an imaginative explorer. His double stops, glissandi at impossibly fast tempos and his blowing are legendary among bass men who, as a cellist once remarked of Piatigorsky, would expect to see him tuck the bass under his chin and bow it like a fiddle." --from the original liner notes; Features: Charles Mingus (bass), Mal Waldron (piano), George Barrow (tenor saxophone), Eddie Bert (trombone), and Willie Jones (drums). A numbered limited edition of 500 copies pressed on Audiophile Clear Vinyl (ACV).
