Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
The great bassist, composer & bandleader Charles Mingus(1922-1979) recorded two masterpieces for COLUMBIA in 1959, 'Mingus Ah Um' & 'Mingus Dynasty'. This excellent CD features three alternative takes from each album.
Tracks 1-3 were recorded at the 'Mingus Ah Um' session in New York City on May 5, 1959 with John Handy(alto saxophone); Booker Ervin(tenor saxophone); Shafi Hadi(alto & tenor saxophone); Jimmy Knepper(trombone); Horace Parlan(piano); Charles Mingus(bass) & Dannie Richmond(drums).
Tracks 4-6 were recorded at the 'Mingus Dynasty' session in New York City on November 1, 1959 with Richard Williams(trumpet); Jimmy Knepper(trombone); John Handy(alto saxophone); Booker Ervin(tenor saxophone); Benny Golson(tenor saxophone); Jerome Richardson(baritone saxophone); Teddy Charles(vibes); Roland Hanna or Nico Bunink(piano); Charles Mingus(bass) & Dannie Richmond(drums).
These takes compare favourably with the originals and the passionate, fascinating music on 'Alternate Takes' makes this CD an excellent companion to 'Mingus Ah Um' & 'Mingus Dynasty'.

Good stuff 7 Mar 2000
By Scott McFarland - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
I applaud Columbia's decision to release this on a single CD and not require purchasers to buy the "Complete 1959" box set to get this music. The songs and the takes are fine. Be sure that you don't miss out on the remastered, restored "Mingus Ah Um" and "Mingus Dynasty" which are now very much improved over the original issues.
