Previously available on vinyl from Gatemouth records, this reissue has an alternate take of the CD's centerpiece, a quintet version of "Cumbia and Jazz Fusion" which Charles Mingus originally recorded for a film score with a 15-piece band. The stripped-down version holds its own charm, wit and power, perhaps more than the Mingus take because of the lack of density and the space given for individuals to shine, those being drummer Richmond, trumpeter Jack Walrath, saxophonist Ricky Ford, pianist Bob Neloms and bassist Cameron Brown.
