One of the most important figures in twentieth century American music, Charles Mingus was a virtuoso bass player, accomplished pianist, bandleader and composer. His early professional experience, in the 40's, found him touring with bands like Louis Armstrong, Kid Ory and Lionel Hampton. Eventually he settled in New York where he played and recorded with the leading musicians of the 1950's– Charlie Parker, Miles Davis, Bud Powell, Art Tatum and Duke Ellington himself. One of the few bassists to do so, Mingus quickly developed as a leader of musicians. From the 1960's until his death in 1979 at age 56, Mingus remained in the forefront of American music. When asked to comment on his accomplishments, Mingus said that his abilities as a bassist were the result of hard work but that his talent for composition came from God.

Arguably Mingus’ greatest recording! Features performances by John Handy, Booker Ervin, Jimmy Knepper, Horace Parlan, Dannie Richmond and many others!

One of the great bassist's most innovative albums, Mingus Ah Um presented this important arranger-composer on a major label for the first time. This album portrays some of his most startling and thought-provoking music.

"At a memorial following Mingus' death, Steve Schlesinger of the Guggenheim Foundation commented that Mingus was one of the few artists who received two grants and added: 'I look forward to the day when we can transcend labels like jazz and acknowledge Charles Mingus as the major American composer that he is.' The New Yorker wrote: 'For sheer melodic and rhythmic and structural originality, his compositions may equal anything written in western music in the twentieth century.'" - All About Jazz
