BBE Music and 180 Proof Records have announced that they will be releasing rare concert tapes of jazz legend Charles Mingus as a 5xLP 180gram vinyl box set called The Lost Tapes: Charles Mingus Live In Detroit.

The Lost Tapes, taken from recordings of Mingus’s week-long residency at the Strata Concert Callery in Detroit, Michigan in February 1973, is set to release November 2nd of this year.

As per the PR: “Following shortly after the release of Mingus’s orchestral masterpiece, Let My Children Hear Music, these recordings capture a lesser-known Mingus line-up including drummer Roy Brooks and trumpeter Joe Gardner (both Detroit natives), virtuoso pianist Don Pullen, and the innovative saxophonist John Stubblefield.”

The Lost Tapes: Charles Mingus Live In Detroit is available for pre-order now.
