Jazz history tells us that Charles Mingus was right up there with the truly great legendary artists in his chosen musical field, as composer, arranger and musician. His status as a composer and arranger stands alongside Monk, Ellington, Miles and Basie, while his status as a musician stands alongside Coltrane, Prez, Bird and Dizzy. The list of jazz musicians Mingus played with would indeed have to include almost the entire range of jazz legends from Ellington (who actually fired him from his band), to Dizzy, Bird, Lionel Hampton, Dolphy, Dannie Richmond, Max Roach, Bud Powell, Pepper Adams, Jaki Byard, John Handy, Jackie McLean, Sonny Rollins etc etc. We feature four Mingus classics, from what was considered his first major work as band leader and composer, “Pithecanthropus Erectus” in 1956 to the perhaps under-rated classic “Tijuana Moods” recorded in 1957 but only released in 1962. Check out AMSC1026 for more great Mingus music.
