Charles Mingus | Mingus Ah Um | Remastered from Original Master Tapes [180g Vinyl]

$39.99

Mingus Ah Um is a studio album by American jazz musician Charles Mingus, released in October 1959 and inducted into the Grammy Hall of Fame in 2013. This album was one of fifty recordings chosen by the Library of Congress to be added to the National Recording Registry in 2003  and is considered an extended tribute to ancestors. "Better Git It In Your Soul" is inspired by gospel singing and preaching of the sort that Mingus would have heard as a child growing up in Watts, Los Angeles, California, while "Goodbye Pork Pie Hat" is a reference (by way of his favored headgear) to saxophonist Lester Young. This edition features the full length of all nine tracks, many of which had been edited in 1959 to fit on the LP. The audio has been completely remastered from the original tapes and the album is pressed on 180g audiophile vinyl.
