This is definatly a classic Mingus album but it's not my favorite overall. There's some awesome tracks, like Better Git It In Your Soul, Boogie Stop Shuffle (My personal fav), and the bonus track GG Train is simply awesome. This album is a great one for that long drive and if you want to show anyone new to jazz a great album with some soul then this is one to give them. I think out of any artist on this discs lineup Dannie Richmond is the best. He's one of the most under-rated drummers of his time I think and he helps carry some of these tracks very well and seems to play with ease.
