Charles Mingus - Something Like a Bird: His Last Recording Sessions



Something Like a Bird fue grabado en 1978 con Mingus ya enfermo, en las mismas sesiones que dieron lugar también al álbum Me, Myself and Eye (Atlantic, 1979). Luego, sólo participó de la grabación de Mingus (Asylum, 1979), de Joni Mitchell, antes de su muerte. En esta ocasión no toca, sino que supervisa sus composiciones. 27 intérpretes conducidos por Paul Jeffrey participan de la extensa Something Like a Bird, muentras que 21 hacen lo propio conducidos por Jeffrey y Ricky Ford en la balada Farewell, Farewell. Algo para recordar.****
