Jazz on the Tube needs you

Our labor of love costs real money, about $1,500 a month in out-of-pocket expenses...

And that doesn't count the time put into sourcing videos, writing them up, and maintaining the world's biggest and most accurate database of jazz festivals, jazz clubs, jazz radio and jazz education on the Internet.

This July 4th week consider becoming a Friend of Jazz on the Tube.

Umbria Jazz Festival,
Todi, Italy, 1974

Composed for by multi-instrumentalist George Adams for Charles Mingus' 1973 album “Mingus Moves,” “Flowers for a Lady” was among several tracks that marked the return of drummer Dannie Richmond after his hiatus from the group.

Mingus in his own right was a pioneering double bassist who drew heavy guidance from the tones of gospel and hard bop. He would become associated with collaborators like Eric Dolphy and particularly Duke Ellington, whom he would count as his strongest influence.

Personnel:

Charles Mingus, bass
Dannie Richmond, drums
Don Pullen, piano
George Adams, tenor sax
Hamiet Bluiett, baritone sax
