Mingus? Silly name but a class act,
This review is from: Blues & Roots (Audio CD)
I'll keep this short, I'm not a big jazz fan, but this album and 'Mingus Ah Um' I love, not 'like', I love them.
The basic reason I think I love those two albums is because, like 'Miles Davis's Sketches of Spain' they are very strong on melody. there's a strong sense of having a recognisable and catchy tune in amongst it all, and it hangs together very well. Toe tapping stuff indeed, and you'll be humming along in no time too.
(turns to camera) Nice
If you love jazz, I'll assume you have this already, if you don't, but are curious, this is a very good place to start.
