Cumbia & Jazz Fusion [Bonus Tracks]

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Scott Yanow
As Charles Mingus's career and life moved into its final phase, his recordings exclusively featured large and often potentially unruly ensembles. This CD, which contains two rather long performances originally recorded as soundtracks for films, is better than most of what followed. "Cumbia & Jazz Fusion" has a large percussion section and quite a few woodwinds along with trumpeter Jack Walrath, tenor-saxophonist Ricky Ford and trombonist Jimmy Knepper while "Music for 'Todo Modo"' adds five horns to Mingus's Quintet. The music is episodic but generally holds its own away from the film.
