In 1974, Charles Mingus arranged for some past members of his various groups over the years to join his current band at the end of a concert, for some serious jamming.

Along with his regulars: George Adams - tenor sax; Hamiet Bluiett - baritone sax; Don Pullen - piano; and Donnie Richmond - drums, Mingus invided trumpeter Jon Faddis (replacing an ailing Roy Eldridge) plus John Handy, Charles McPherson and Rahsaan Roland Kirk on a variety of saxophones, to form a 'big band blowing session' that was later described as one of the most exciting shows ever produced at Carnegie.

The concert consisted of seven selections in all, but for the finale and encore, Mingus chose the most common denominator of jazz: Ellington. An Exclusive title on CD to MFSL, this disc features two songs with the Duke.
