In 1960 bassist Charles Mingus helped to organize an alternative Newport Jazz Festival in protest of Newport's conservative and increasingly commercial booking policy. The music on this LP (which has been reissued on CD) features some of the musicians who participated in Mingus's worthy if short-lived venture. Trumpeter Roy Eldridge performs three numbers with pianist Tommy Flanagan, Mingus and drummer Jo Jones; of greatest interest is "Mysterious Blues" for it adds trombonist Jimmy Knepper and the unique altoist Eric Dolphy successfully to the group. The other selections match up drummers Max Roach and Jo Jones with Roach's quintet (featuring trumpeter Booker Little) on "Cliff Walk" and feature singer Abbey Lincoln on "Tain't Nobody's Bizness If I Do."

Atlantic Jazz: Best Of The '50s is self-explanatory but I will explain. This is a Rhino compilation of music from Atlantic Records' jazz vaults, representing the 1950's. Primarily instrumental but featuring a small handful of vocal jazz, it is some of the best music the label had to offer. This was a library disc so since there were stickers and handwriting on the booklet and disc, there are no scans for it.
