Favourite / best Charles Mingus album?
Since buying a few Charles Mingus CDs a short while ago I've been playing his music a heck of a lot, even playing some CDs in the car when out and about (which I don't normally do). I wouldn't have even been able to name a Mingus album before buying the ones I have now to be truthful, but I'm absolutely hooked. The music really grabs at my brain and soul. Better late than never I suppose.
The first full Mingus album I listened to was Pithecanthropus Erectus, and whilst I enjoyed it a lot, The Clown really got to me. I played that about four times before moving on to 'Oh Yeah'....and that album? Wow! Where have I been? I've lost count of how many times that's been played already Oh Yeah is definitely my favourite so far, and I've listened to Blues & Roots, Ah Um, and The Black Saint and the Sinner Lady, which are all brilliant as well. I've got tonight at noon to listen to still, and there are some more CDs on the way.
Anyone have a favourite Charles Mingus album, and or an album they would particularly recommend?
