Bebop - Verschenen op 30 april 1996 | Columbia - Legacy

This Is Jazz, Vol. 6 isn't an ideal overview of Charles Mingus' seminal Columbia recordings, but it isn't bad, either. Many of the featured 16 songs are among Mingus' very best, giving novices a good idea of the sound, style, and depth of his music, even if it doesn't provide an ideal context. Nevertheless, This Is Jazz doesn't intend to provide context, which will undoubtedly frustrate collectors and jazz purists. However, it does succeed in offering an affordable sampler of his classic Columbia recordings for curious listeners, and it succeeds quite well in that regard. © Stephen Thomas Erlewine /TiVo

Jazz - Verschenen op 16 februari 1999 | Columbia - Legacy

Although Charles Mingus released a number of albums which count among the all-time greats of modern jazz, most lists of his best would include Mingus Ah Um and Mingus Dynasty, the utterly thrilling, innovative sessions from 1959. Alternate Takes provides just that from those dates -- alternate versions of six pieces, all of them noteworthy. Occasionally, one can hear why a certain take wasn't retained for the final album: On "Better Git It in Your Soul"," for example, the theme as stated by the front line comes back too quickly, trampling on a Dannie Richmond drum solo. But even that raggedness is none too off-putting in a Mingus-ian context where a certain amount of chaos is both expected and welcome. In fact, if the listener just forgets about the whole idea of alternate takes, he or she can simply wallow in one stupendous Mingus composition after another. Saxophonists John Handy and Booker Ervin are glorious in their rare combination of hyper intelligence and deep soul, and Jimmy Knepper is his normal, outstanding self. Some of the pieces, like "Song With Orange," feature sections later dropped in the released version, but the real joy is not found in discographical oddities but in the amazing music itself. This is Mingus at or near the height of his powers, working with two of his very finest bands (tracks one through three are performed by a sextet, tracks four through six by a tentet). No self-respecting fan can possibly be without it. The booklet contains a fine essay by Mingus biographer Brian Priestley. © Brian Olewnick /TiVo
