37 mingus blacksaintThis album is regarded as one of his masterpieces for its use of colours, tonalities, expansive harmonies, and the juxtaposition of numerous aspects of the jazz tradition - from swing to hard bop, to West Coast and beyond - employing a vocal chorus, and even Latin and flamenco flourishes in a single conceptual work played by an 11-piece orchestra. Mingus has called the album's orchestral style "ethnic folk-dance music". Musicians include Jaki Byard and Eric Dolphy, both of whom played in the quintet/sextet bands that toured Europe in 1964.
