Charles Mingus
The Black Saint and The Sinner Lady

Charles Mingus and company conjured magic on 20th January 1963. The Black Saint And The Sinner Lady is a composed piece spread over six parts, with occasional blasts of full-ensemble free improvisation. Still sounds mind-blowing all these years later - a true original at the intersection of jazz and folk.

Charles Mingus
Mingus Mingus Mingus Mingus Mingus

Despite being named Mingus Mingus Mingus Mingus Mingus, a title that perhaps suggests a solo, Mingus-only effort, this 1964 record actually captures Charles Mingus’ experimentation with a large, 11 piece group, performing some of his finest tunes, including ‘Better Get Hit In Yo’ Soul’. Vinyl reissue on the Jeanne Dielman label.

Charles Mingus
Jazz in Detroit / Strata Concert Gallery / 46 Selden

A real bumper haul from the Charles Mingus vaults here. The widow of late drummer Roy Brooks had these concert tapes in her care for many years. Only now are they seeing the light of day. Recorded during a week-long residency at Detroit's Strata Concert Gallery in 1973, the five shows here are from a short period when Mingus had John Stubblefield in his band on sax duties. The resulting performances, broadcast at the time on WDET FM, see Mingus and his group bossing the joint night after night.

Mingus Plays Piano

Superior Viaduct are doing an admirable job bringing rarer slabs of the great Charles Mingus back into print with a set of new vinyl reissues. Mingus is of course renowned for his double bass playing, and yet Mingus Plays Piano is just that. Turns out he is a wonderful, sensitive pianist as well, thoughtfully improvising his way around the keys.
