AllMusic Review by

A lesser effort but still with more than its share of memorable moments, this Mingus set (a reissue of a date for Bethlehem) has plenty of fine solos by trombonist Jimmy Knepper and tenor-saxophonist Shafi Hadi, appearances by trumpeters Bill Hardman and Clarence Shaw and a narration by Melvin Stewart on the interesting "Scenes in the City"; one of the better "jazz and poetry" efforts.
