Mingus Mingus Mingus Mingus Mingus = LP = (LP Used)
It's worth pondering just what kind of music Charles Mingus would have made, had Duke Ellington not been born. Of course, without the Duke, where indeed would music, especially Jazz done in the last 50 years of the century? Duke is all over this album. You could just as easily call it Duke, Duke, Duke, Duke, Duke. Not just because Mingus pays tribute to his mentor in the lovely rendition of Duke's classic "Mood Indigo", but listen to how the piano bridges the wildness of the horns on tracks like, "Hora Decubitus", "Better Git Hit in Your Slul", and the fantastic "II B.S.". Classic Ellington style. And when the band slows down, as they do on "Theme for Lester Young", the results are simply stunning. This is indeed one of the top five must own Mingus albums. It is honestly that good!
