Mingus at Carnegie Hall is a live album by jazz bassist and composer Charles Mingus recorded at Carnegie Hall in January 1974 by Mingus with Jon Faddis, Charles McPherson, John Handy, George Adams, Rahsaan Roland Kirk, Hamiet Bluiett, Don Pullen, and Dannie Richmond.[1]


The Allmusic review by Stuart Kremsky awarded the album 4½ stars and states "This is a fun 45 minutes, particularly for the jovial interplay between saxophonists Kirk and Adams, but in its released form, only hints at the strength of The Jazz Workshop in 1974".[2]
