Description
The Duke Ellington compositions "Money Jungle," "Very Special," and "Wig Wise" were introduced to the listening public for the first time with this 1962 LP. As Ellington remarks on Charles Mingus's intro to the interrupted take that precedes the master of "Backward Country Boy Blues": "Ah, that was so good ... that was sweet." Too true, and also pertinent to the classic ballads "Warm Valley" and "Soltitude," the latter with its beautiful baroque flourishes and contemplative spell.

'''Caravan' finds Mingus emoting in lyrical fashion while walking the bass forcefully. Roach drives the classic tune straight ahead while Ellington reaches down to obtain the majestic harmonic formula originally intended. 'Switch Blade' has a trademark Mingus intro that sets the mood for a slow, nightingale-like piano swinger. The bassist steps forward later with walking bass along a hiking boot landscape, and then as soloist with tales to tell…. Considering its 24-bit mastery and the addition of rare but exceptional material, this 40-year-old, highly recommended session has gotten better with age."—All About Jazz
