“This may be the best record Mingus ever has made, as he is quoted describing it on the back liner. As for me, I wouldn't know –I haven't heard all of Mingus' records. I do know, however, that seldom have I been moved to shout the music as I was in portions of his album. The main thing is that this is one of the best albums released this year.” (Don DeMichael)
