Charles Mingus, Tonight at Noon

Mingus has always been a master of texture by assembling bands with exceptional musicians. Tonight we will listen to his Tonight at Noon recording that features among others trombonist Jimmy Knepper, saxophonists Shafi Hadi, Roland Kirk and Booker Ervin. On a couple of tracks, Mingus even relinquishes his bass playing and delegates it to Doug Watkins while himself takes the role of the pianist. All of that à la sauce Dannie Richmond on drums.
