Charles Mingus, Mingus at Antibes (Atlantic)

Not too much Mingus all at once, but then again one can never have enough too much Mingus. Just a quick note for a long, gorgeous, wish it would never end performance with Dolphy, Booker Ervin, and Bud Powell. I could swear Mingus is singing throughout its entirety, but for the life of me I can never figure out exactly what he's singing. Only that he's singing, about passion. If you grab a bottle, the task of decipherment will become that much easier.

Suggested Wine Pairing: Relaxed and easy like a warm summer night under the stars. The show's in France but the wine is California: Montoya Cabernet Sauvignon 2005, Napa Valley.
