I think great artists who have created a whole new SOUND are notoriously difficult when it comes to playing their music. This is a notable exception. The SOUL of Mingus is here, but the sound is a completely new realisation of his work. A tremendous effort by all concerned. Instruments designed and built by Harry Partch were used extensively on this album, and for the first time in a commercial recording other than his own. They are: Cloud Chamber Bowls, Bass Marimba, Marimba Eroica, Diamond Marimba, Chromelodeon II, Harmonic Canon, Surrogate Kithara, Cone Gongs and Crychord.

Impresario Hal Willner pulls off a neat hat trick by giving you two tribute albums for the price of one. Willner gets such artists as Elvis Costello, Robbie Robertson, Chuck D. and Henry Rollins to perform the beatnik-styled items in Charles Mingus' extraordinary jazz songbook while backing them with the freaky instruments created by the avant-gardist Harry Partch.
