Mingus Ah Um

Prick up your ears. Listen attentively.

Mingus Ah Um, Charles Mingus (1959). The Pitchfork review of a 2 CD “legacy” release but the review does a good job of placing Mingus in the context of his contemporaries and time as well as describing “Mingus Ah Um”.

Seven albums, seven days. I’m slowing it down, staying in, stopping and listening, and taking the time to put the needle on the record and flip the side.
