In Toronto the quintet performed brilliantly with asides for individual temperaments. And, fortunately, there was a tape machine present to record most that came to pass.
Asides aside, they blew music of startling quality that night. These were no golden days of bop, this commemorates no zenith of a style, but it is eloquent music played by five exceptional musicians, something of a distinction among jazz recording circles as a general rule.
This was a quintet that bop build, a quintet which had largely build bop, excepting Mingus, possibly, who had spent most of the early bop years on the West Coast. And the fascination of the music of the revolution it was, is more than equalled by the personal mark it made on each of these. Two choruses, a release and, now, this will be the last chorus.
