Charles Mingus: Mingus Plays Piano
Call to Check Stock: 707.364.1709
Excerpt from Allaboutjazz.com:
"Mingus Plays Piano is one of the most beautiful recordings, period. It is on its own terms perhaps a more personal statement than even the masterpiece The Black Saint and the Sinner Lady. While indulging in absolutely none of the ear-straining superficial ugliness of much of the “new jazz” music of the period, it manages to attain to the personal exposure and honesty to which many New Thing-ers aspired. Anything by Mingus is worth hearing; Mingus Plays Piano should be in the first rank — so far from a mere novelty as to be one of this great artist’s finest hours."
