Until now, I have hesitated reviewing JAZZ cds,even though I am an avid JAZZ fan.(LONG story!). There are also TOO MANY Mingus cds I would love to talk about,as I have been an passionate enthusiast of Mingusmusics since 1970. MINGUS MOVES, however, has a special place in my heart. It has one of my favorite lineups that he had created musics with.(and you Mingus followers KNOW who were luminaries in prior aggregations). Eric Dolphy not withstanding, George Adams and Don Pullen are 2 of the more unique voices in Jazz, both steeped heavily in tradition, but had their restless hearts always seeking new horizons.Underrated,both had their favorite musical gestures-Pullen's piano glissandos and ferocious "cluster note " solo technique. George Adams (much like Grant Green) was not a note-crazy technician, but offered a unique style of full toned Texas tenor,offering lines alternating honey sweet with avant guard squalls of "Tenor temor" , a sort of "quasi- John Gilmore / Marshall Allen approach"(for those conversant in "SUN RA, does that sound reasonable?") This cd features the usual high quality Mingus compositions, along with 1 piece each from Adams and Pullen. Also, one of the cd's highlights, "WEE",is credited to Sy Johnson. This composition's opening "lament" sequence then erupts into a Mingus trademark "funk" groove,(in the "Mingus tradition",that is). The Mingus compositions are quite regal, and the quintette(Ronald Hampton rounds out the group on trumpet)sounds like a larger aggregation. The arrangements are impeccable. "Moves" features vocals , very elegant and hauntingly melancholy, a beautiful duet .Read more ›

Highly recommended 1974 date from Mingus, with his quintet including George Adams, Don Pullen, Jack Walrath, and of course Dannie Richmond. If it's possible, try to locate the 1993 reissue of this album from Rhino--it's the only version that includes the bonus tracks "Big Alice" and "The Call." These are not to be found on the subsequent reissues from 32 or Collectables, and certainly are a welcome addition.

Some very unique songs and one very beautiful "Moves" with vocals by Honey Gordon and Doug Hammond. I really like the work with Don Pullen and George Adams. Both of those guys are such tremendous players... in another league entirely. This was one of a dozen Mingus titles I bought recently to fill a major gap in my jazz collection. Next will be the Debut series.

This is another masterpiece from a jazz genius who was tragically under-appreciated in his lifetime. With the talented help of pianist Don Pullen and Saxophonist George Adams, he expands the pallet of modern jazz to embrace dissonances and make them sound as naturally a part of the music as the most straight-forward melody.

This review refers to the edition released on Rhino that features the two outstanding bonus tracks "Big Alice" & "The Call."
The album is a studio recording of three October dates in 1973 and it was released the following year. It's not the most talked about Mingus album, but the compositions are outstanding. The quality of performance is not far from any other album recorded with this line-up (Mingus, Richmond, Don Pullen, Ronald Hampton and George Adams.) The title track features Honey Gordon (who also sang on the bonus track "Strollin'" on "Mingus Dynasty") and the song's composer--Doug Hammond--both on vocals.
A variaty of styles is presented: There are two very different ballads: "Canon" and "Moves." There's also a chop-craving up-tempo waltz titled "Opus 4." "Opus 3" reminds me of Mingus' composing-style at the "Pithecantropus"-era. There's the bonus track "Big Alice" - a latin-influenced Don Pullen composition. The solos on the other bonus track "The Call" give you a feeling of something from the "Changes" session (which wasn't recorded long after these 1973 sessions.) Good sound-quality. The whole album has a clear mix.
I deeply recommend this album as much as e.g. "Blues & Roots," but I most point out that this is not the album to start with if you aren't familiar with Mingus' music.
Start with "Ah Um" or "Mingus Dynasty" - they're easier manuals to make you understand what the fuzz is about.

I gave this one a try because I've long favored the "Sue's Changes" albums. It's on a par with those more famous recordings, great stuff.

Do your ears a favor and go for the remastered version. It's about the same price and includes the two bonus songs.

This is one of my all time favorite albums and one of the few that I give 5 stars to. The piano playing is very unique in a good way. I love the overall mood of the album and of course the compositions.
