180g Vinyl Mono LP!

Blues & Roots was recorded in 1959 and released in 1960. Bassist Charles Mingus is joined here by Horace Parlan, Jackie McLean, Booker Ervin, and more.

"In response to critical carping that his ambitious, evocative music somehow didn't swing enough, Charles Mingus returned to the earthiest and earliest sources of black musical expression, namely the blues, gospel, and old-time New Orleans jazz. The resulting LP, Blues and Roots, isn't quite as wildly eclectic as usual, but it ranks as arguably Mingus' most joyously swinging outing. Working with simple forms, Mingus boosts the complexity of the music by assembling a nine-piece outfit and arranging multiple lines to be played simultaneously..." - allmusic.com, Steve Huey
