Now the full concert has been released as a deluxe edition of Mingus At Carnegie Hall. Available in a 2-CD or 3-LP set, the music includes 72 minutes of unreleased material with the original running order of the concert in the correct sequence.
“The deluxe 3LP set features never-before-seen photos taken by original photographer Gosta Peterson and new liner notes by jazz historian and producer, Michael Cuscuna and additional notes by composer and arranger, Sy Johnson,” the Mingus website adds.
