There's nothing else in jazz quite like this collection recorded — astonishingly — in just one session on January 20, 1963. With liner notes written by Mingus's psychotherapist, the album uses ornate ensemble orchestration to produce a sound somewhere between jazz and folk.

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.

Side A
1. Solo Dancer
(Stop! Look! And Listen, Sinner Jim Whitney!)
2. Duet Solo Dancers
(Heart's Beat And Shades In Physical Embraces)
3. Group Dancers (Soul Fusion) Freewoman And Oh, This Freedom's Slave Cries)

Side B
1. Trio And Group Dancers
(Stop! Look! And Sing Songs Of Revolutions!)
2. Single Solos And Group Dance
(Saint And Sinner Join In Merriment On Battle Front)
3. Group And Solo Dance
(Of Love, Pain, And Passioned Revolt, Then Farewell, My Beloved, 'Til It's Freedom Day)
