Charles Mingus - Mingus Ah Um

Mingus Ah Um

My favorite Charles Mingus album, Mingus Ah Um is from 1959. It is one of the best jazz albums of all time. The album is mostly hard bop and avant-garde jazz. All the musicians sound good together. "Fables of Faubus" is one of my favorites. Charles Mingus plays the bass and also the piano on "Pedal Point Blues".
