Changes One

Charles Mingus

31 January 2005

Changes One and Changes Two are rightly considered to be Charles Mingus' finest recordings of his later period,  Changes One features four brilliant Mingus originals ("Remember Rockefeller at Attica," "Sue's Changes," "Devil Blues" and "Duke Ellington's Sound of Love") performed by a particularly talented quintet (tenor-saxophonist George Adams who also sings "Devil Blues," trumpeter Jack Walrath, pianist Don Pullen, drummer Dannie Richmond and the leader/bassist). A recommended example of the great bandleader's music.
