"Mingus is also all about the ensemble...this reissue has a life and immediacy I've not heard before with this title, whose stunning music overwhelms any flaws of the recording." - Wayne Garcia, The Absolute Sound, June/July 2009

Produced by Impulse! A&R director Bob Thiele in 1963, this recording is a major showcase of the talented Charles Mingus as a bassist, pianist and writer. In his 1963 original liner notes, critic-at-large Nat Hentoff said that of all the musicians, it is impossible to remain indifferent to Mingus. This recording more than any other testifies to Hentoff's claim. More so today than in 60's, there is truly only one Mingus, Mingus, Mingus, Mingus, Mingus.

Originally released in 1963.

Reviewer: Peter Sydney Australia
I only had this on an older CD and the sound was terrible, thin & tinny.This sounds absolutely wonderful on this 45 rpm release Bass pumps out at last.Probably not a great engineering job on the original which is unusual for impulse but Analogue Productions have done a great job on this.Thank You
