1959 Score Reissued On Vinyl LP!

For the first time on vinyl, Charles Mingus's great score for the legendary 1959 directorial debut of John Cassavetes, Shadows. Much has been said about the controversial relationship between these two masters. Shadows would mark the only time Mingus would record music for a feature film; his soundtrack may have been too far ahead of his time.

"The score encapsulates Cassavetes's and Mingus's unique approaches to both improvisation and composition in their respective media, illuminating the oppositional nature of jazz to mainstream cultural production and the underbelly of race relations in 1950's America" -- Ross Lipman
