Album Art

I’ve only recently come across this album of Charles Mingus playing piano; a bassist, composer, and bandleader, Mingus was naturally a competent pianist, but I was unaware that he’d released an entire album of largely-improvised sessions. As one reviewer noted, it’s interesting to hear how his mind works; his compositional strategies are apparent even in spontaneous solo play.
