    Used to have that whole series of concerts on DVD. Lent it to someone and never got it back. Mingus and Dolphy! It don’t get no better IMO.

    Not that I would know them ( but I might), but who were the other players here?
    The bass clarinet ( I played the clarinet in junior high) is just beautiful looking and that sound!

    Jaki Byard played piano with Mingus

    Dannie Richmond on drums. Supposedly he had no idea how to play drums until Mingus made him his drummer.

    Beautiful. Eric Dolphy can be a bit out there. This is spot on.
