"Originally released as two 10" albums called Jazzical Moods, Jazz Composers Workshop #2, was the result of one of Mingus famed Jazz Workshop sessions, held in December 1954 and featuring Thad Jones (trumpet), John LaPorta (clarinet, alto sax) Teo Macero (tenor / baritone sax), Jackson Wiley (cello), and Clem DeRosa (drums). Mingus intended the Workshop as an outlet for young jazz composers, who might otherwise not be given the opportunity to record their own material, including Mingus own compositions which, along with one composition by Teo Macero, are given center stage here. This LP, also features Mingus debut on piano." (label info)
