Allmusic:
Originally recorded for Period Records in 1954, this fairly obscure early Charles Mingus session is a collaboration with composer John LaPorta, who is heard on clarinet and alto saxophone. It's a fascinating effort that shows Mingus' awareness of both modern European classical composition and cool jazz.
The set includes a mix of Mingus and LaPorta originals, plus freshly arranged standards like "What Is This Thing Called Love" and "Stormy Weather." Also on hand are the great trumpeter Thad Jones and saxophonist/producer Teo Macero. The album features Mingus' debut on piano.

Tracks
1. "What Is This Thing Called Love?" - 8:08
2. "Stormy Weather" - 3:18
3. "Minor Intrusion" - 10:13
4. "Abstractions" - 4:12
5. "Thrice Upon A Theme" - 6:40
