A New (to me) Mingus performance on YouTube

12 posts in this topic

I think it comes from live at Theatre National de Paris, October 28th, 1970.  The first tune is In A Sentimental Mood, not All To Soon.  It was issued as various LP/CDs, but I didn't know video footage survived.

I wonder if there's footage of any other numbers.

Never even heard of Eddie Preston (Trumpet) before…

I like his work on the 1971 Mingus albums recorded for America Records.  Not familiar with him otherwise.

Know him mostly from personnel listings on Ellington records, plus the stint with Mingus. Good to finally put a face to the name, and his playing here is nicely seasoned, as it should be, with that resume!

Yes those two America LPs of 1970. Great band, mostly for Bobby Jones, Jakie Byard, Charles McPherson, but not much fire. 
That was also the only time I heard of Eddie Preston. 
Shortly after that I bought the then outcoming Miles Davis "Get Up with It" and I think there is a track "Billy Preston" on it, and since I had not heard about Billy Preston and had forgot ....Billy or Eddie..... I thought wow, Miles did a dedication to a quite obscure fellow trumpet player ?

The YouTube clip is dated and sourced Oslo, October 22nd 1970, While these references are often wrong on YouTube, the clip is stamped with NRK, which in fact is the moniker of the Norwegian Broadcast Company. Given all that, any reason to doubt that this is in fact from Norway?

Oh, I didn't know NRK is a Norwegian TV.  I stand corrected.

I also have this CD. But I almost never listened to the second CD with all the remainders with fals starts and discussion and so.
