 1957 was a mammoth year for Mingus. He was on fire, recording several seminal titles including ‘The Clown’, ‘Mingus Three’, ‘Tijuana Moods’, ‘East Coasting’ and ‘A Modern Jazz Symposium Of Music And Poetry’.
 Now, with the support of the Charles Mingus Estate, New Land are proud to present, for the first time, the most expansive LP edition of ‘A Modern Jazz Symposium Of Music And Poetry’ to date. A wonderful set featuring an all-star band alternating throughout of Jimmy Knepper (trombone), Shafi Hadi (tenor and alto sax), Bill Hardman and Clarence Shaw (trumpet), Dannie Richmond (drums), Horace Parlan and Bob Hammer (piano), with narration by the fabulous Mel Stewart.
 This is the ultimate edition, including all available outtakes and material related to the session, the recordings have been remastered from the original tape transfers and lacquers cut by Kevin Gray, housed in a gatefold sleeve on reverse-board finish and printed by Pallas.
 A stunning album which is sometimes overlooked from the vast Mingus catalogue, however it emanates from one of his most creative periods and today stands out as a sublime conceptual recording.
