Last week I posted about Jazz Workshop in early 1950s, in Boston.

Also I posted about RCA Jazz Workshop recording series in the past.

Go here and herehere  and here

This week I would like to post about about other Jazz Workshops with naming like Jazz Workshop.

Charlie Mingus often worked with a mid-sized ensemble (around 8–10 members) of rotating musicians known as the Jazz Workshop.

In 1959 Mingus and the Jazz Workshop musicians recorded one of his best-known albums, “Mingus Ah Um”.

This album included a famous “Fables of Faubus”.

Then it was recorded on “Charles Mingus Presents Charles Mingus” for the Candid label produced by Nat Hentoff in 1960.

Mingus’s great theme was freedom.

Ultimately the Jazz Workshop aimed “Organized chaos”.「組織化された混沌」

They held a total of five concerts,“The Jazz Workshop Concerts 1964-65 (Town Hall, Amsterdam, Monterey ’64, Monterey ’65 & Minneapolis”.

He wrote a review about “Mating Call” in 1957.

“Why a trumpet wasn’t added remains a mystery”.

Hentoff wished there had been an extra horn on the date, and he mused “a gentler trumpet”.

This recording had been subject to discussion among critics as Ira Gitler points out in the liner notes.

After the death of Clifford Brown in June 1956, Blue Note label was recording more aggressive sound with joining young superior trumpeters such as Lee Morgan and Donald Byrd.

Also Bob Weinstock produced Miles Davis for a marathon recording session at the end of November 1956.

Producer Bob Weinstock had envisioned the date as a quintet session including trumpeter.

However Tadd Dameron had rejected Weinstock’s plan.

I guess Tadd wanted to record without trumpeter.

After all this session was recorded without a trumpet player.

Arranging with one horn alone was marvelous.
