Charles Mingus and His Jazz Composers Workshop - The Complete Savoy and Period Master Takes
The compositions herein are performed by two of the famed Charles Mingus Jazz Workshop groups and they are considered among his best recorded works.
These 1954 recordings represent the grass roots from where all the innovative forms and expressions of tomorrows jazz conceived by Mingus really began. From then on, Mingus became the most influential composer and bassist of various generations in jazz history. After its first date, he said about the improvised interplay between every instrument: "I feel that it is usually impossible to attempt such delicacies with musicians who do not enjoy the unusual freedom or understand the thought of the leading instrument. Teo Macero, John LaPorta, George Barrow and Mal Waldron, of course, are just as responsible as I am for the final construction".
Thad Jones (tp), John LaPorta (cl, as), Teo Macero, George Barrow (ts, bs), Mal Waldron (p), Charles Mingus (b, p), Rudy Nichols, Clem DeRosa (d), Jackson Wiley (cello)
