The Clown

Charles Mingus

03 May 2004
Includes the classic ‘Haitian Fight Song’ and ‘Reincarnation Of A Lovebird’.  ‘Blue Cee’ gives the principals (which include trombonist Jimmy Knepper and Shafi Hadi on alto and tenor) a chance to stretch out and Jean Shepherd verbally improvises a memorable story on ‘The Clown’.  With 2 bonus tracks.
