Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
This was the first Mingus album I heard in the early 1960s and it still sounds wonderful today.
Mingus assembled a potent band for this November, 1961 session which included multi-instrumentalist Roland Kirk(in his pre-Rahsaan days), the great tenorist Booker Ervin and expressive trombonist Jimmy Knepper all at the peak of their powers.
Mingus's right-hand man Danny Richmond is on drums with Doug Watkins taking over the bass duties leaving the leader to accompany on soulful piano and contributing some bluesy vocals(plus occasional shouting!).
Highlights include the earthy, rumbustious 'Hog Callin' Blues' featuring an inspired Roland Kirk, the churchy 'Ecclusiastics' and the Monkish 'Wham Bam Thank You Ma'am'. 'Eat That Chicken' is a humorous tribute to Fats Waller while 'Passions of a Man' is a strange, surreal early rap with highly unusual and effective instrumental backing. The three excellent bonus tracks from this session, '"Old" Blues For Walt's Torin', 'Peggy's Blue Skylight' and 'Invisible Lady' were first issued on 'Tonight At Noon'.
'Oh Yeah' was the record that turned me on to modern jazz and while not quite a Mingus masterpiece it's a wildly entertaining, turbulent and passionate album that deserves to reach the widest possible audience.

BTW ~ The earlier CD re-issue of 'Oh Yeah'(ATLANTIC JAZZ 90667-2) omits the three bonus tracks but is important for the inclusion of a fascinating 24-minute interview with Mingus conducted by the producer, Nesuhi Ertegun.

Format: Audio CD
This is one of Mingus' best albums and is unusual in several respects. Most notably Mingus plays piano, and the roaring insistent passages as well as soft comping are hugely effective. The three horns (Booker Ervin and Roland Kirk on sax, Jimmy Knepper on trombone) are powerful and soul stirring. In addition, Mingus' singing/vocalizing punctuate the sounds in a manner similar to drums and bass. For example, the opening "Hog Callin' Blues" begins with a righteously vocalized bop riff by Mingus, and is accompanied by fiery, sometimes dissonant sax work by the great Roland Kirk. The blues similarly colors many songs, but really, Mingus adds his imprimatur to all musical influences.
Ecclusiastics is a blues (well, a Mingus blues) with Mingus' prayer-like bop vocals and piano adding a spiritual dimension. This song is simply beautiful; I'd love to hear this sometime as an orchestral piece! The group shifts from soothing, Ellingtonian strains to buoyant noise in seconds; it is a beautifully realized composition.
"Oh Lord, Don't Let Them Drop That Atomic Bomb on Me" is another musical prayer (with Mingus' famous line "don't let them drop it, stop it, bebop it"). And "Eat that Chicken" is, well, unlike anything: A rollicking song about "eating chicken," which is both farcical and a deeply felt appreciation of appetitive delights. It's a different number alright, but essentially spiritual and akin to a joyous gospel. Passions of a Man is a total surrealistic delight, with Mingus intoning Spanish (or is it a mixture of Spanish and Mingus-ese?) and shouts of "Viva!" set against the group's abstract "Latin." I don't know with what it compares, but it is a daring delight! The Atlantic re-release adds three songs from the 1964 "Tonight at Noon.

The otherwise infallible Cook and Morton slightly underrate this album for some reason but it has always thrilled me. In fact, it was one of the handful of albums that got me into jazz in the first place. Just try out Hog Callin' Blues and you're hooked -- guaranteed!

Make me wanna holler 10 Dec. 2002
By gone daddy gone - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Give this one 12 stars! Hot hot hot record! You won't ever find music more alive then this, if you can sit down while Hog callin blues gets going then you're ready for the crypt. Genius genius genius! Stop it! Bebop it! My god this music is almost obscene in it's brilliance and vitality, at times the ecstasy approaches Klezmer territory, at others it's just sooooo blue that no one else should be allowed by law to even try to play the style after 1962. Filled with all the madness and beauty expected from Mingus, it just goes somewhere else. Rock musicians such as Zappa and Beefheart spent their entire careers trying to capture this feel and never even got close, not really even worth mentioning, I only do so in the event you are a rock fan and don't know this music, so buy this and hear the real deal. Still guranteed to scare the elderly, inspire you to holler and commit various acts of social irresponsibility, while still flooring anyone with musically sensitive ears. Glorious glorious music.

Protest. 19 May 2001
By "wednightprayermeeting" - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Released in '61 at the beginning stages of the burgeoning avant garde jazz movement, OH YEAH marks the times with it's non-violent resistance. But, this is Charles Mingus,irascible, he's been labeled, and in fashion, OH YEAH contains a bit of civil disobediance.
"Hog Callin' Blues" starts out the album, which is of the most fun of all Mingus tunes, and really wails on account of Rahsaan Roland Kirk (who appears throughout OH YEAH).
"Devil Woman" contains Mingus in full blues shout.
"Ecclusiastics" is super charged gospel Mingus, a fun tune with a swingin' churchy hand clappin' break down section.
"Lord,Please Don't Let Them Drop That Atomic Bomb On Me" is a fearful, jam, with Mingus audibly pleading with Jesus.
Mingus, as usual manages to cyringe a bit of rye humor in to this albums, and doesn't fail with this one--with the raucous Jelly Roll Morton style parody of minstrel "humor," "Eat That Chicken."
The first inklings of the '60s psychedelic rock genre are fathered with the politically charged and trippy "Passions of a Man."
With the newer reissue, you get a few more songs, most from his 1957 TONITE AT NOON album.
One of my very favorite of all of Mingus' albums, and essential for a full historical retrospect of 1960s America.
Couldn't speak more highly of this one, it's a barn burner.

I don't know with what it compares, but it is a daring delight! The Atlantic re-release adds three songs from the 1964 "Tonight at Noon." These are very good, particularly the noirish "Invisible Lady, and are more on the Ellington side of the spectrum, featuring lush arrangements and excellent (but relatively more conventional) sax solos. If you can't get the re-release, you'll still have the essentials of "Oh Yeah."
I highly recommend this to all jazz fans, but it's an essential addition for Mingus fans. The bebop, blues, and spiritual idioms, Mingus' vocal and pianistic efforts, and the brash raucous notes alternating with orchestral statements are combined in an inspired, inspiring masterpiece.

Utterly bizarre album that will appeal to fans of Captain Beefheart and Screamin' Jay Hawkins 18 Aug. 2005
By TimothyFarrell22 - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
This is probably my favorite Mingus release, even though "Mingus Ah Um" and "The Black Saint & the Sinner Lady" are probably technically superior (not to mention more accesible). As the title stated, this will please fans of Captain Beefheart and Screamin' Jay Hawkins as much as it will Mingus fans. The factor that makes this unique among his albums is his vocals - yes he sings! Mingus was always known for choosing offbeat song titles ("Better Get Hit In 'Yo Soul", "Orange Was the Color of Her Dress, Then Blue Silk"), but his lyrics are intensly surrealistic. Case point for the abstract lyrics is certainly "Oh Lord, Don't Let Them Drop That Atomic Bomb On Me". Every song is a winner also, this is a rare album that you can play start to finish without hitting the skip button. The high point of the album probably is the final track, "Passions of a Man", which deconstructs - no, demolishes any sort of set rhythm. As much an essential as any of Mingus' more well-known classics.

Not one I listen to much. 22 July 2005
By Michael Stack - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
"Oh Yeah" is an odd record-- even for Charles Mingus. On this album, the master bassist sits at the piano, hiring Doug Watkins to play bass for him and pulls up a microphone, singing (well, its more like a blues preach than a sing, but you get the picture) several numbers in his own inimitable style.

The resulting album is, well, its unique. Its often highly praised and even revered as a masterpiece by Mingus fans, but I think this has more to do with the novelty of the record than anything else as the music contained within isn't really all that powerful, and it lacks something else that most Mingus albums have-- tightness. I mean, its clear these guys are having a lot of fun with the material (or at least Mingus is), but I find it a bit too loose, a bit too much fun to bear witness on repeated listens. The fact that the music is largely conventional may have something to do with this-- I love Mingus precisely because he was so progressive, but this sticks to blues and gospel forms pretty much exclusively.

Now mind you, here's exceptions to every rule-- there's certainly some nice tenor soloing by guest Roland Kirk on Devil Woman" (and the piece is worth noting as one of the better of the shouts), "Oh Lord, Don't Let Them Drop That Atomic Bomb on Me" is certainly amusing, but I disagree with most about "Haitian Fight Song" rewrite "Hog Callin' Blues"-- its so loose that the structure of the piece falls apart.

The reissue of this is the one to get, with three extra tracks (roughly half of "TOnight At Noon", with the other half to be found on the reissue of "The Clown"), worth the extra bucks simply for the lovely take of "Peggy's Blue Skylight", a nice feature for Roland Kirk on manzello and one of the better readings of a wonderful Mingus piece.

Still, as far as Mingus records go, its fairly unessential. If you enjoy his vocalizations on other albums, then take some time to check this one out-- two stars if it didn't have "Peggy's Blue Skylight", that performance really is unnervingly brilliant.
