Format: Audio CD
Although the bassist/composer/bandleader Charles Mingus could never be described as a piano virtuoso his playing on this overlooked 1963 solo album displays more feeling and imagination than many over-hyped contemporary jazz pianists. The piano was always important to Mingus when creating his compositions and it's fascinating to hear him alone at the piano playing seven hauntingly beautiful improvised originals plus four meditative standards.
This marvellous CD repays repeated listening and deserves a place in any Mingus collection.

Charles Mingus Plays Piano - sounds like improvisation, intuitive genius, same thing with the Composer Beethoven relatively in theory at least could not play the piano, yet improvisation is what you do, Beethoven was blind yet not many people knew that, yet he knew what to do and touched the piano keyboard and channelled intuitively the most incredible music, yet he could write random sheets of music, that took many days to decipher, a blind person has a way with music, sometimes an individual has an invisible disability, say like myself with dyslexia, yet I have composed music, not many people knew much about that, much of genius played upon a piano is lost for prosperity, that's what you do in an inspired moment, that is pure magical composition, your lonely, maybe you have no friends and family around, you live a solitary moment to express how you feel, this category of Gingus Mingus, plays the blues with deep jazz, Charles Mingus never knew he could play the piano, that is factual, I remember a Live session of improvised Soul Music with a Triad of Jazz musicians, at the legendary basement at Ronnie Scots Club, in Soho in London England, that late night session included Charles Mingus on Double Bass, a strings instrument, there is the most magical presence, Gingus Mingus plays Jazz Soul Music, mostly channelled in the present moment, that is the power of now when Mingus Plays Piano.
