Easily recommended to fans of the Mingus Big Band and other somewhat riotous ensembles.

    A rare gem

    I heard about this compilation on NPR And knew that I had to hear the entire CD. Believe me, grab it and enjoy some of the freshest sounds since ever! I am not a student of music, but now I find myself learning about these territory orchestras.
