    In fact, about a year later, I'd say that this may be Mingus's single greatest achievement. The concept and context of the album are wonderful and then there's the sophistication and quality of the compositions and, of course, the exquisite playing from the entire ensemble. I don't think any of the greats who were turning out classic work at the same time could touch what Mingus did here.

    This one's a masterpiece, the first of several.

    what is the need for all the annoying beeps and sound effects in the title song? music is so much nicer smooth and when its actually demonstrating the prowess of the musicians & their instruments
