Recorded on Oct. 20,1960 with just a quartet with Charles Mingus on bass leading Eric Dolphy on alto saxophone and bass clarinet, Ted Curson on trumpet and Dannie Richmond on drums, this date was done with the studio lights turned down and with Mingus announcing the tunes as if they were in a club. This was the last hurrah for this quartet as Dolphy and Curson had given their notice to Mingus. They agreed to make this last recording and played for their lives. This is one of Charles Mingus' most important recordings and a pivotal one in his varied career.
