Mingus i Carnegie Hall 1974 3LP/2CD

Husker du da LP-en «Mingus At Carnegie Hall» ble gitt ut i 1974? Det var nok mange av eksemplarene som nesten ble spilt sønder og sammen det neste året, med sine 45 minutter med musikk fordelt over to spor, Ellington’s «C Jam Blues» og «Perdido». For et band! For en jam! Og for en blåserrekke!

Jon Faddis på trompet, og så denne rekka med saksofoner; Charles McPherson, John Handy, Rahsaan Roland Kirk, Hamiett Bluiett og George Adams. Og på toppen av det hele Don Pullen på piano ved siden av det siamesiske paret Dannie Richmond og far sjøl! What’s not to like?

Om få dager slippes en dobbelt-CD «Mingus at Carnegie Hall — De Luxe Edition», mens en trippel-LP slippes 16. juli i sommer.

Med masse ny musikk, musikk som vi ikke har hørt tidligere, fra den samme jam session! Om vi gleder oss? Hvorfor i all verden spør du?

 

Fra den offisielle Charles Mingus-siden har vi hentet dette:

«MINGUS AT CARNEGIE HALL» Deluxe Edition

Originally recorded on January 19, 1974, Mingus At Carnegie Hall was released as a 1LP that only featured 2 long tracks (C Jam Blues and Perdido) from the concert; one track per LP side, and features Jon Faddis, Charles McPherson, John Handy, George Adams, Rahsaan Roland Kirk, Hamiet Bluiett, Don Pullen, and Dannie Richmond. Yet the original concert in January of 74’ included 2 hours of performances, but nearly 70+ minutes were left on the cutting room floor. With jazz music on the decline in the US in the 1970s, Atlantic Records was probably concerned about releasing a 3LP set at a higher price point that only the most ardent fans would purchase at the time.

Well after 47 years and in honor of this year’s Black Music Month; Run Out Groove has righted the course of this ship, issuing the complete 1974 Mingus At Carnegie Hall album with over 72 minutes of unreleased material and putting the original running order of the concert in correct sequence. The deluxe 3LP set features never-before-seen photos taken by original photographer Gosta Peterson and new liner notes by jazz historian and producer, Michael Cuscuna and additional notes by composer and arranger, Sy Johnson.

Available as a limited 3LP set and a 2CD edition. The limited 3LP set is available to order from Run Out Groove Vinyl here: shipping July 16.

The 2CD edition is available from RHINO here: shipping June 11

LP-utgaven er prissatt til $45, mens CD-utgaven er annonsert i Amazon for $17.
