Charles Mingus Sextet

Genre: Documentary; Starring: Charles Mingus, Eric Dolphy

Mingus’ music, as straightforwardly captured in this 1964 concert, remains as fresh and challenging as almost anything in jazz today. This is the only known footage of composer-bassist Mingus with innovative sax man Eric Dolphy (savor ”So Long, Eric”) – who, two months later, would be dead of a heart attack at 36.
