A Stunningly Effective Confluence of Spoken Word with Jazz... least the first track is! Scenes In The City isn't exactly poetry but the narration is brilliantly draped alongside the music in a way that neither the music nor the words have the same effect alone as when coupled with one another.

Bethlehem Music released this album in 1957. The album has been re-issued as part of a box set by Bethlehem, including Jazz Experiments Of Charles Mingus and East Coasting.

Listen to the record here.
