Total Time

The 1964 Charles Mingus European tour has been widely documented on records but
as far as we can tell this is the only visual record available.
The Oslo concert is special for many reasons, not least the fact that the band is
exactly what Mingus had in mind when he left USA. Later on, trumpeter Johnny Coles
fell ill and had to quit tour whilst the trumpetless quintet continued playing the remainder of the tour.
As long as it lasted the full group had a big sound and played well together...
