3. Charles Mingus - Mingus Ah Um (1959)

7-mingus-ah-umCharles Mingus' debut for columbia, is a stunning production of his talents and probably the best reference point for beginners. The band includes longtime Mingus stalwarts John Handy, Shafi Hadi, Brooker Ervin; Jimmy Knepper Willie Dennis, Horace Parlan; and Dannie Richmond. This razor-sharp performance may well be Mingus' greatest most emotionally varied set of compositions.
