Now Shipping: MINGUS March 12 2015
We here at Superior Viaduct are super excited to be reissuing two classic albums by CHARLES MINGUS, one of the most radical figures in American music.
The Black Saint And The Sinner Lady is without question MINGUS' magnum opus. Balancing delicate Spanish modes and Ellingtonian themes, the ensemble breaks into a divine cacophony of group improvisation on par with free jazz giants Ornette Coleman or Cecil Taylor.
On Mingus Plays Piano, the only album to feature MINGUS on his instrument of choice for composing, trance-like solo piano musings reveal a tenderness rarely associated with the man and his music.
Pre-orders shipping immediately. In stores everywhere on March 17th.
