In January of 1963, bassist and composer Charles Mingus recorded a very personal
and socially conscious work he titled The Black Saint & The Sinner Lady. Each
composition, from the opening "Solo Dancer" to the closing "Group and Solo
Dance" was a musical expression of Mingus' philosophy of life, love and the
world around him. To the legendary bassist, this recording was so personal that
he asked his friend, clinical psychologist Dr. Pollack, to review the music. As
Dr. Pollack stated in the original liner notes: "Psychologists interpret
behavior... why not apply this skill to music." Dr. Pollack did just that,
interpreting the Mingus message inherent in his music - music that speaks of the
artists' yearning for love, peace and freedom. For Charlie Mingus and the
musicians that joined him - Charlie Mariano, alto saxophone; Jake Byard, piano;
Jay Berliner, guitar; Don Butterfield, tuba; Dick Hafer, tenor saxophone and
flute; Quentin Jackson, trombone - The Black Saint & The Sinner Lady was much
more than just another album, it was a jazz ballet performed by a small
ensemble. It has become a landmark event.
