AllMusic Review by

Incredible document. An oddly relaxed interview of Mingus during a 24-hour period when he is being evicted from his New York City apartment. Very loose, up close, and filled with brilliant Mingus remarks and antics. This, plus shots of Mingus playing with a small group, make this one-of-a-kind video -- a must for fans of Mingus and for jazz lovers in general.
