Reissue of the 1955 Classic featuring "Stormy Weather" and "Thrice Upon A Time". Originally released as a series of 10-inches, before being compiled into an LP, this album is one of Charles Mingus' first masterworks, an album that hints at the compositional flourishes he'd bring to his masterpieces Mingus Ah Um and Black Saint And The Sinner Lady. A portrait of the artist as a young man, delivered in two sides of delightful jazz.
These 1954 Period Records sessions include the work of Thad Jones on trumpet and John LaPorta on clarinet and alto sax, combine old and new forms of classical and jazz for a cool jazz sound. Tracks like 'Minor Intrusion' and 'Thrice Upon a Time' demonstrate the synergy between Mingus and his players, and display his compositional skills.
