2 Original Albums On 180g Double LP!

These are Mingus' two big breakthrough albums that cemented his name as a jazz innovator and bandleader.

The Clown (1957) introduced two of Mingus' finest compositions in the driving, determined "Haitian Fight Song", appropriately rousing with a characteristically long, brilliant bass solo and the '40s-flavored "Reincarnation of a Lovebird", a peaceful but melancholy tribute to Charlie Parker.

With Pithecanthropus (1956), Mingus displayed a gift for airtight, focused arrangements that nonetheless allowed his players great freedom to add to the established mood of each piece. All four feature fantastic arrangements. Two truly great modern jazz albums from the mid-fifties!
