Artist: Dannie Richmond Album: The Last Mingus Band . The stripped-down version holds its own charm, wit and power, perhaps more than the Mingus take because of the lack of density and the space given for individuals to shine, those being drummer Richmond, trumpeter Jack Walrath, saxophonist Ricky Ford, pianist Bob Neloms and bassist Cameron Brown. Richmond has since passed away, leaving this great recording behind as a testament to his voracity and the enduring legacy of Mingus.
