Charles Mingus - Mingus Ah Um album FLAC

Mingus Ah Um is a studio album by American jazz musician Charles Mingus, released in 1959 by Columbia Records. It was his first album recorded for Columbia. The cover features a painting by S. Neil Fujita. The album was inducted into the Grammy Hall of Fame in 2013. The Penguin Guide to Jazz on CD calls this album "an extended tribute to ancestors" (and awards it one of their rare crowns), and Mingus's musical forebears figure largely throughout.

Mingus Ah Um" is, in my opinion, the ideal album to discover the giant genius Charles Mingus. Those who do not like jazz should start with this album, it contains all the pleasant elements of jazz. This record dates from 1959, and yet, the quality of the recording is superb. This album is one of the best record for chill. Mingus touches everything: bop, free jazz, new orleans, while keeping his personality. The arrangements are grandiose, Ervin and Handy (sax) give me a huge slap,.

Mingus Mingus Mingus Mingus Mingus is a 1964 album by American jazz composer and bassist Charles Mingus. Mingus collaborated with r Bob Hammer to score the music for a large ensemble of brass and saxophones.
