Mingus at Antibes

I had this on vinyl back in the day, and have only recently had access to it once again. The highlights are the interplay between Mingus and Dolphy's bass clarinet on "What Love," an original tune based I think on "What is this Things Called Love," and Bud Powell's long solo on "I'll remember April," when the band becomes a trio for a stretch. Danny Richmond is on drums.
