The music of Charles Mingus stands as some of the most boisterous, emotional and honest that has even been written. His and other lyricists’s efforts to broaden the emotional impact of the music has never been more effective than on the new recording, Mingus Sings. Vocalist Ku-umba Frank Lacy brings a touching and inspirational approach to the words over the amazing music of the Mingus Big Band.
