Album of the Day
Live At Carnegie Hall Deluxe Edition
Among the most important figures in 20th century American music, Charles Mingus was a virtuoso bass player, band leader and composer. LIVE AT CARNEGIE HALL shows the jazz icon's skills to remarkable effect – along with the talents of such players as saxophonist Rahsaan Roland Kirk, pianist Don Pullen and trumpeter Jon Faddis. Recorded on January 19, 1974, the Atlantic collection was initially released as a single LP with one long track per side (“C Jam Blues” and “Perdido”), leaving most of the concert on the cutting room floor. In honor of Black Music Month, the new 2-CD LIVE AT CARNEGIE HALL DELUXE EDITION presents the complete performance in its original order for the first time with more than 72 minutes of unreleased material.
