Given the vaunted status of and incessant competitiveness among qualified musicians for the first section chairs of major symphony orchestras, perhaps it should not come as too much of a surprise that a first-chair soloist is often as skilled in transmitting concerto literature as a "star" recitalist.

Features 24 bit remastering and comes with a mini-description. After bassist/composer Charles Mingus' death on January 5, 1979, a reunion band featuring some of his former sidemen called Mingus Dynasty was formed.

The music is often exotic, too, a signpost to ethno-ambient trance and exotic dub that would appear in great quantities over the following decades. The ambient breakbeat epic "Sunrise" by Young American Primitive is a stunner, its arpeggios and gorgeous strings anchored by a deep tribal drum groove…
