Mingus at Antibes

3 posts in this topic

57 years ago Charles Mingus was invited to perform at the Antibes Jazz Festival in Juan Les Pins, France, a concert recorded and finally issued in the 1970's. Last night, in the first part of each hour, Blue Lake Public Radio featured that recording, and later in the evening the sessions Mingus did for Candid recordings in the fall of 1960. This 5 hour episode of Jazz From Blue Lake is available today under "Programs" https://www.bluelake.org/ondemand .

Eric Dolphy's solo on Wednesday Night Prayer Meeting is one of the greatest solos ever played, IMO. 

Fantastic album!
