(Nov 17, 2012 – Sat. bonus): Charles Mingus – Hora Decubitus

From  the 1963 album, Mingus Mingus Mingus Mingus.  This was sort of a Mingus “greatest hits” album except all the tunes are taken apart and remade.  With “Hora Decubitus” you get a revamp that roars of “E’s Flat Ah’s Flat Too” from the 1960 Blues & Roots.  A cast of talent appears here, including Jaki Byrd, Eric Dolphy, Booker Ervin, Rolf Ericson, and Walter Perkins.
