Charles Mingus - The Jazz Experiments Of Charles Mingus


  • £20.99

Originally released as two 10" records titled Jazzical Moods in 1955, before being compiled into an LP the following year on Bethlehem Records, The Jazz Experiments of Charles Mingus is one of Mingus' first masterworks, an album that hints at the compositional flourishes he’d later bring to his masterpieces Mingus Ah Um and Black Saint and the Sinner Lady
Recorded in New York in 1954, with Mingus on double-bass and piano, John La Porta on alto saxophone, Teo Macero on tenor saxophone, Thad Jones on trumpet, Clem De Rosa on drums, and Jackson Wiley on cello, the album features interpretations of standards such as 'Stormy Weather' and 'What Is This Thing Called Love,' as well as originals by Mingus and La Porta.
