Trumpeten - Charles Mingus

Just a quick note: whilst scratching my way through the internet head, I came across this little Swedish / Mingus gem. Despite the video being in many ways 'quality challenged', it's probably the best performance of 'Meditations' and, dare I say, the mid sixties sextet line-up I've heard. Enjoy!

Intro: So Long Eric
Outro: So Long Eric

Charles Mingus: Bass
Eric Dolphy: Alto Sax, Bass Clarinet, Flute
