Track Personnel Changes (variances from session personnel)


compositional notes

Mingus wrote in liner notes: "This is an extended form version on a more or less standard set of chord changes. This form challenges the musician to create a line of long-held notes for the first chorus, to develop it on one or two chords (or rhythm patterns, scales, etc.) and then redevelop the line on the out chorus. This is done using only one or two chords per phrase so the lines must be developed for a much longer period of time than is usually taken before the chord change…The whole success of the extended form depends on the ability of the musicians to do this in soloing and also in playing counter or accompanying lines." -JG
