The Teddy Charles Tentet

Editorial Reviews

Of these, "Blue Greens" is a change of pace, a quartet outing for Charles, pianist Hall Overton, bassist Charles Mingus, and drummer Ed Shaughnessy. All in all, this CD is pretty definitive of Teddy Charles' more adventurous music of the 1950s and it grows in interest with each listening. [The 2001 reissue on Collectables strips away the three bonus tracks that were appended to the original album when first released on CD by Atlantic.]
