concert offered here. On the first two songs, the trumpeter is Joe Gardner – who recorded with Frank Morgan and Clifford Jordan – while Cat Anderson is added as the guest star on a lively version of “Perdido” – Juan Tizol’s classic tune from the Ellington songbook. Charles Mingus (1922-1979) was more than just one of the best acoustic bassists in jazz. He was also a highly important composer and bandleader who had a completely personal style and musical concept. He was equally well known for his strong personality and his activism against racial prejudice. He performed with most of the important musicians of his time, participating on such memorable sessions as the Massey Hall concert with Charlie Parker, Dizzy Gillespie, Bud Powell and Max Roach, and Duke Ellington’s album Money Jungle. While it appears that the aforementioned three tracks were the only ones filmed at the Berlin performance, discographies mention two other song from the concert that were recorded for radio purposes, “Blues for a Saw” and “Fables of Faubus”.
