This version is from the album Blues & Politics by the Mingus Big Band and it was recorded in 1999. 20 years after his death so it is one of a few ensembles put together to play Charlie Mingus music. This particular big band made 11 albums and in this record the saxophone player is Seamus Blake born in England moved to canada and went to Berklee School.

@Felix Debrook Mingus Ah Um is an album by Mingus, and yes, Goodbye Pork Pie Hat is one of the tracks on that album

Mingus is easily on of my favorite composers of all time, full stop.

This is unbelievably good. Dark, moody, richly textured, smooth. Substantial and venerable.

James Lyons

Yes! The original is much shorter and is devastatingly sad! I’ve never forgotten it from 1962!
