So Long Eric - Charles Mingus Sextet With Eric Dolphy - Cornell 1964 (CD, Album)


  1. The widely heralded European tour by the Charles Mingus Sextet didn't come to a crashing halt because of the sudden collapse of trumpeter Johnny Coles due to a perforated ulcer in the early part of the group's April 17th concert. Mingus simply took a day off to reassign Coles' parts to the other musicians and returned to the stage on the 19th. The bassist had one of his finest bands, with Eric.
  2. In , courtesy of Charles Mingus' widow Sue, with the help of Michael Cuscuna and Blue Note, gives us another heretofore unknown bit of jazz history with the Charles Mingus Sextet with Eric Dolphy's Cornell University Concert from March 18,
  3. Confrontational, sprawling and historic, this resurrected March performance by one of his favorite bands—Johnny Coles (trumpet) and Clifford Jordan (saxophone) with favorite sons Dannie Richmond (drums), Jaki Byard (piano) and Eric Dolphy (reeds, flutes)—presents the muse of bassist Charles Mingus in all its terrible glory.
