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.
