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, Booker Ervin, Jimmy Knepper, Willie Dennis, Horace Parlan and Dannie Richmond. This razor-sharp performance may well be Mingus' greatest and most emotionally varied set of compositions.
