Great recordings from Mingus' important 1964 tour of Europe – recorded in Germany in April of the year, with a group that features Eric Dolphy, Jaki Byard, Clifford Jordan, and Dannie Richmond. The sophistication of the group shows Mingus at a high point – working beautifully with Dolphy, and getting Jordan to craft some of his most complicated work to date. Tracks are longish – and titles include a 37 minute reading of "Fables Of Faubus", plus "Meditations" and "Starting".  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.
