Charles Mingus The Complete Town Hall Concert 1962

The Complete Town Hall Concert is a live album by Charles Mingus and a large band.

It was recorded at The Town Hall in New York City on October 12, 1962. The album was originally released as Town Hall Concert in 1962 and then reissued in 1994 with extra tracks as The Complete Town Hall Concert.

The album has suffered from a poor reputation as Mingus and his band were playing previously unrecorded music.
