Langston Hughes, Charles Mingus and Leonard
© 1990 PolyGram Records, Inc.
Bittersweet poems of protest and joy by that fine African American poet Langston Hughes read to a surging cadence of jazz composed in part by Leonard Feather and in part by Charles Mingus and played by the Horace Parlan Trio and an All-Star Sextet. A remarkable performance, now available in its entirety after a long abscence from the catalogue.
All compositions by Charles Mingus
