"Cumbia & Jazz Fusion" is an electrifying work that features two extended compositions by one of the most notable figures in twentieth century American music. The title track highlights a varied use of woodwind instruments creating a full-bodied arrangement bursting with Latin and African rhythms. Compelling melodies can be experienced on the blues-inspired swing track “Music For Todo Modo”. The album is a fine recording late in Mingus’ extensive career.

As Charles Mingus' career (and life) moved into its final phase, his recordings exclusively featured large (and often potentially unruly) ensembles. This CD, which contains two rather long performances originally recorded as soundtracks for films, is better than most of what followed. "c" has a large percussion section and quite a few woodwinds along with trumpeter Jack Walrath, tenor saxophonist Ricky Ford, and trombonist Jimmy Knepper while "Music for 'Todo Modo'" adds five horns to Mingus' quintet. The music is episodic but generally holds its own away from the film.
