"Remember Rockefeller at Attica" - Charles Mingus The title refers to the Attica prison riot of 1971, in which inmates took hostages and seized control of the prison. After four days of negotiations, New York governor Nelson Rockefeller ordered state police to retake the prison by force. The event left 39 dead. One might expect a grave tone when setting this scene to music, but Mingus opts for the ridiculous.
