Charles Mingus

Legendary Trios


Charles Mingus (b), Hamton Hawes, Paul Bley (p), Dannie Richmond, Art Blakey (d)

Reference: 69222

A pairing of rare piano trio sessions featuring Charles Mingus -- back to back on an expanded CD! The first 7 tracks on the set are from the 1957 Jubilee album Trio (aka Mingus Three) -- a record that has Mingus working with regular drummer Danny Richmond and pianist Hampton Hawes -- an odd choice, but that's what makes the recording so unique. The album's sort of an east meets west session, with Hawes' incredible piano lines flying over the top, and Mingus' bass coming to the forefront in this nice relaxed trio setting. The set list includes a mix of originals and standards, with "Back Home Blues", "Hamp's New Blues", "Dizzy Moods", and "Laura". The remaining 11 tracks are from sessions for a rare 10" album that Bley cut with Art Blakey on drums and Charlies Mingus on bass -- a set that was done upon Mingus' discovery of Bley's talents, and which was issued on his own Debut label briefly in the 50s.
