A lesser effort but still with more than its share of memorable moments, this Mingus set (a reissue of a date for Bethlehem) has plenty of fine solos by trombonist Jimmy Knepper
and tenor-saxophonist Shafi Hadi
, appearances by trumpeters Bill Hardman
and Clarence Shaw
and a narration by Melvin Stewart
on the interesting "Scenes in the City"; one of the better "jazz and poetry" efforts.
