Charles Mingus - Right Now (1964)

Charles Mingus - Right Now: Live At The Jazz Workshop (1964)
Label: OJC
MP3 @192kbs : 67mb

Recorded live at The Jazz Workshop in San Francisco, CA on June 2 & 3, 1964

Charles Mingus bass John Handy alto sax (#1) Clifford Jordan tenor sax Jane Getz piano Dannie Richmond drums

1. New Fables 23:18
2. Meditation (For A Pair Of Wire Cutters) 23:42

Soon after Charles Mingus finished touring Europe with his band (the unit that featured Eric Dolphy), he recorded this CD, performed live at The Jazz Workshop in San Francisco. With tenor-saxophonist Clifford Jordan and drummer Dannie Richmond still in the group but Jane Getz replacing pianist Jaki Byard and altoist John Handy filling in for Dolphy on one song, the band performs excellent versions of "Meditations on Integration" and "New Fables," both of which are over 23 minutes long. Although not up to the passionate level of the Mingus-Dolphy Quintet, this underrated unit holds its own.
