Bassist Charles Mingus was largely inactive in music during 1966-69. This CD finds Mingus leading a new sextet comprised of veteran alumni (altoist Charles McPherson, pianist Jaki Byard and drummer Dannie Richmond) and two newcomers (trumpeter Eddie Preston and Bobby Jones on tenor). The music, two new songs («The Man Who Never Sleeps» and «O.P.») and a remake of «Orange Was the Color of Her Dress,» is enjoyable although not particularly innovative; it does have some exciting moments.
