Charlie Mingus - East Coasting


'East Coasting' is an album by Charles Mingus,recorded and released in 1957. Allmusic awarded the album four stars, stating: 'One of Charles Mingus's lesser-known band sessions, this set of five of his originals (plus the standard 'Memories of You') features his usual sidemen of the period (trombonist Jimmy Knepper, trumpeter Clarence Shaw, Shafi Hadi on tenor and alto and drummer Dannie Richmond) along with pianist Bill Evans. The music stretches the boundaries of bop, is never predictable and, even if this is not one of Mingus' more acclaimed dates, it is well worth acquiring for the playing is quite stimulating'. Tracklist SIDE A: 1. Memories Of You 2. East Coasting 3. West Coast Ghost Bonus track: 4. Memories Of You (alternate take 3) SIDE B: 1. Celia 2. Conversation 3. Fifty-First Street Blues Bonus track 4. East Coasting (alternate take 3)
