Bassist Charles Mingus was largely inactive in music during 1966-69. This CD finds Mingus leading a new sextet comprised of veteran alumni (altoist Charles McPherson, pianist Jaki Byard and drummer Dannie Richmond) and two newcomers (trumpeter Eddie Preston and Bobby Jones on tenor). The music, two new songs ("The Man Who Never Sleeps" and "O.P.") and a remake of "Orange Was the Color of Her Dress," is enjoyable although not particularly innovative; it does have some exciting moments.

Features 24 bit remastering and comes with a mini-description. Early work from David Fathead Newman – so early, the cover has him listed as "Dave" on the front! The album steps nicely off Newman's early work with Ray Charles – and does plenty to establish him as a leader on his own – putting Newman's bold, soulful tenor right upfront in the mix – and backing him with small combo players who include Marcus Belgrave on trumpet, Norris Austin on piano, and Hank Crawford on a bit of piano! There's a deep undercurrent that's mighty nice – almost a rootsier quality than on other Newman albums – and titles include "Cellar Groove", "Hello There", "Alto Sauce", and "Scufflin'".

Recorded in Rome, Italy on February 8, 1968. The disc documents a 1968 performance of the Coleman Quartet in Milan, Italy, and features the interesting lineup of Coleman on alto sax, trumpet, and shanai, Ed Blackwell on drums, and the bass duo of David Izenzon and Charlie Haden. As can be expected, the quartet plays with great care and collective understanding throughout. Opening the date is a touching version of "Lonely Woman" performed in the style, perhaps, of his 1965 trio featuring Izenzon and Charles Moffett.

Decades before Corey Harris, Guy Davis, and Keb' Mo' wed the Delta blues to various folk forms, there was Taj Mahal. Almost from the very beginning, Mahal provided audiences with connections to a plethora of blues styles. Further, he offered hard evidence connecting American blues to folk styles from other nations, particularly, but not limited to, those from the West Indies and various African countries, bridging gaps, highlighting similarities, and establishing links between many experiences of the African diaspora...
