“Reincarnation of a Lovebird” is a composition dedicated to Bird. “I wouldn’t say I set out to write a piece on Bird. […] Suddenly I realize it was Bird. […] In one way, the work isn’t like him. It’s built on long lines and most of his pieces were short lines. But it’s my feeling about Bird. I felt like crying when I wrote it.”

Charles Mingus - bass
Shafi Hadi - alto and tenor saxophone
Jimmy Knepper - trombone
Wade Legge - piano
Dannie Richmond - drums
