Format: Audio CD
This is absolute high-octane feelgood music. The title track gets my five year old daughters dancing around the room with wild abandon [they call it 'bird jazz' because of the slow build up of whistles, drums and bass at the beginning]. It takes you on an amazing jazz journey from swing to latin to avant garde to blues and back again, with that characteristic Mingus stop-start element very much in evidence. The two piano pieces are a delight, too: Mingus is an under-rated pianist, and very much on percussive, creative form here.

This CD is a bass players masterclass. Mingus manages to lead the band through a hard-swinging adrenaline rush which almost leaves the listener breathless. If you like 'Tequila Moods'/'New Tequila Moods' and are looking for a disc to complement it then look no further. If you've never heard Mingus before and are looking for somewhere to start, then this is as good a place as any - come see what the fuss is about. Oh, and don't let the presence of a mere two tracks put you off - you get more than your money's worth here. Enjoy.

5.0 out of 5 stars A must have. There is simply nothing like it. 29 Oct. 1998
By Chris Stockel - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
The two songs on this are some of Mingus' most intricate and complex compositions. The title track comes at you like a mack truck, using heavy rhythmic patterns, mixing minor and major keys, incorporating bassoons and piccolo flutes, and pounding a 5 note bass line. It continues to journey through many moods, all the while using amazing horn lines. Both tracks are pure compositional genius, rich in texture, sophisticated in melody and harmony, and overall amazing to listen to. Enjoy

4.0 out of 5 stars Better than you might think 3 May 2002
By PH-50-NC - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
If you save 5 stars for Mingus Ah-Um and Charles Mingus Presents Charles Mingus, then this must rate just below those standouts. With the words "Jazz Fusion" in the title, and the fact that the Lp originally contained two tracks only (side A/side B), I put off getting this record--sounded like aimless jamming or pretentious overreaching. Well, I was wrong. It is simply enjoyable, and its a shame that others may be scared away by an awkward title and a lack of description about the work's various movements. Like an Ellington suite (say the Far East), there are distinct movements, none inaccessable. There are wonderful touches of exotica, including percussion touches from the tropics, and a few wildlife sounds thrown in at the beginning for good measure. All in all, I like this more than I like some of the better-known earlier Mingus records, though not more than the Columbia or Candid recordings, which are for me the tops.

5.0 out of 5 stars This album swings -- don't let the word "fusion" throw you 4 Sept. 2002
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
I have the original LP -- two pieces of music -- one on each side. Both pieces are great and have several "movements", presented more like a symphony. Each one has sections that shift in and out of blues and swing. Then move into a more South American flavor, then stop time ballad intrusions. I love Cumbia Jazz Fusion for the variety and also the vocal lyrics of Mama's Little Baby (it brings tears to my eyes every time I hear it. Even though this was his last recording session (according to Sue Mingus's marvelous new book, "Tonight at Midnight".) is full on Mingus through and through. The conga playing is provocative and at one point builds to a thrilling conclusion. Every chance I get a spare 27 minutes I put it on the turntable. As the liner notes say this is "Mingus Music".

5.0 out of 5 stars I love this dude 15 Sept. 2014
By Biggie Man - savior of the universe! - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Dude, this is beyond stellar. WOW!!! Just picked this up at the local thrift store for a quarter in immaculate condition! I love this dude, but never even heard of this album. OMG is it amazing! I am only 15 minutes into the first listen, and man o man, you know that feeling when you find something so frigging special.... you just KNOW its going to live in the CD player's rotation for a long while???
This is exactly how I like my jazz --- challenging and highly sophisticated. "Cumbria and Jazz Fusion" is not an album for uninvolved novice jazz people, but if you are into stretching the head, well, this is going to do that and more. A MUST BUY (especially for a quarter!!!)
