Charles Mingus at Montreux, 1975

Charles Mingus performing “Take the A Train” with Gerry Mulligan on baritone saxophone, George Adams on tenor saxophone, Benny Bailey and Jack Walrath on trumpets, Don Pullen on piano and Dannie Richmond on drums on about two years before he died.

Watch out for the sly signal about halfway through the song, when Mulligan asks Dannie Richmond and Don Pullen “to go dark” as he and Mingus preach in tandem. What follows is absolutely priceless.
