Release Date:11/02/2018;Notes:JAZZ IN DETROIT / STRATA CONCERT GALLERY / 46 by CHARLES MINGUS on FIVE 180 gram vinyl LP pressing. The radical discovery by Amir Abdullah of 5 two-track master tapes in the care of Hermine Brooks - - widow of innovative Detroit drummer Roy Brooks - of the Charles Mingus Quintet recorded live in Detroit at Strata Concert Gallery is cause for some serious celebration. These electrifying recordings took place during Mingus' week-long residency in February 1973. They were broadcast live by drummer/producer and broadcaster Robert "Bud" Spangler for WDET FM - a public radio station dedicated to jazz - from Kenny and Barbara Cox's multi-purpose home for Strata Records at 46 Seldon. Entrance to the gig was $5 dollars in advance and $6 on the door. The music on these tapes is blazing. According to the late Roy Brooks, the band - which included himself and fellow Detroit trumpeter Joe Gardner - had not long returned from playing two tours in Europe. Fresh to the quintet was stellar pianist Don Pullen and listening to these recordings Pullen's church-driven power, blues sensibility and harmonic sophistication perfectly complements the bassist's own vision. On tenor saxophone we have the soulful and innovative John Stubblefield. Like Pullen he was a recent recruit. Unfortunately, the saxophonist's time with Mingus lasted a mere 5 months: "I got in a fight with Mingus and I shouldn't have done that. After that, I couldn't get arrested in New York." Ironically, when Sue Mingus formed the Mingus Big Band in 1992, to perpetuate her husband's legacy, Stubblefield emerged as a talismanic presence in the ensemble until he passed in 2005.
