This is one of the many great compositions of Charles Mingus. He recorded it in 1959.

After the intro the theme is first played by trumpet, trombone, alto and tenor. The second time all sections play together, answering each other.

Then there is a march-like interlude followed by an alto solo and trumpetsolo. A tutti leads to the end of the piece.
