Composed by Jerome Kern for the 1939 musical “Very Warm for May,” “All the Things You Are” had a chorus that would later become very popular in jazz. With The Quintet, Charles Mingus would play it with Dizzy Gillespie, Charlie Parker, Max Roach and Bud Powell.
In 1960 Mingus, drummer Dannie Richmond and sax player Eric Dolphy recorded their far more experimental “Freud” adaptation for the album “Charles Mingus Presents Charles Mingus.” This extremely lively version likely dates to the later '60s.
