Originally recorded on January 19, 1974, Mingus At Carnegie Hall was originally released as a single LP that only featured 2 long tracks ("C Jam Blues" and "Perdido") from the concert. Despite just one track per side, the album featured 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 for whatever reason, nearly 70+ minutes were left on the cutting room floor. Atlantic Records was probably concerned about releasing a triple vinyl 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 2021'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.
Deluxe heavyweight triple vinyl edition produced by Run Out Groove in partnership with Atlantic Records in 2021. Gorgeous trifold jacket features never-before-seen photos taken by original photographer Gosta Peterson and new liner notes by Jazz historian and producer, Michael Cuscuna.
