Charles Mingus • Chazz


Review by Stuart Kremsky
The Jazz Workshop of 1955 is in superb form, caught in performance at the Café Bohemia in New York. Max Roach only appears for a "Percussion Discussion" with Mingus, but the forgotten Willie Jones is no slouch either. A typically adventurous set of tunes includes two montages. ("Septemberly" combines "September in the Rain" and "Tenderly", while "All the Things You Can C-Sharp" is a blend of "All the Things You Are," Rachmaninoff's "Prelude in C-Sharp" and "Clair de Lune.") It's a very spirited date, ranking with his best work in the period.


Reseña de Stuart Kremsky
El Jazz Workshop de 1955 está en plena forma, grabado en el Café Bohemia de Nueva York. Max Roach sólo aparece en un «Percussion Discussion» con Mingus, pero el olvidado Willie Jones tampoco se queda atrás. Un conjunto de melodías típicamente aventurero incluye dos montajes. («Septemberly» combina «September in the Rain» y «Tenderly», mientras que «All the Things You Can C-Sharp» es una mezcla de «All the Things You Are», el «Prelude in C-Sharp» de Rachmaninoff y «Clair de Lune»). Es una cita muy animada, que figura entre sus mejores trabajos de la época. ...

  1. Una maravilla de música y de músicos en directo. Mingus antes de Dannie Richmond. Mal Waldrom haciendo de las suyas. Proemios de música clásica, desarrollo con ritmo de jazz y epílogo clásico. A destacar "Septemberly".
