O’s Notes: Tonight At Noon celebrates the music of Mingus in the form of the eleven piece Charles Mingus Orchestra (4 tracks) and the Mingus Big Band (6 tracks). The common thread is exhilarating and powerful brass delivering the message of the music with vivacious spirit. Vocals come from Frank Lacy on “Devil Woman” and Elvis Costello on “Invisible Lady” to round out a strong set.
