We are pleased to announce "Charles Mingus - The Jazz Workshop Concerts 1964-65 (Town Hall, Amsterdam, Monterey '64, Monterey '65 & Minneapolis)." It chronicles the essential live performances of this genius of modern music as his compositions achieved a depth and complexity we would come to know as Mingus's most signature work. It includes (on the earlier recordings) the brilliant Eric Dolphy, along with Jaki Byard, Dannie Richmond, Johnny Coles, and Clifford Jordan -- certainly one of the best assemblages of musicians ever.
What makes this collection even more appealing is the fact that, of the seven discs in the collection, only one of them has ever been available on an authorized CD. Almost two full CD has never been available on CD at all. And more than two hours worth of music include new discoveries - appearing for the first time ever, in any form.
