Charles Mingus Presents Charles Mingus By Charles Mingus
In 1960, celebrated jazz critic Nat Hentoff called Charles Mingus to record a number of sessions for the new Candid label. Mingus was given absolute freedom on these sessions, and the results of the first date were issued on the celebrated Charles Mingus Presents Charles Mingus. The band consists of a pianoless quartet with trumpeter Ted Curson, alto saxophonist Eric Dolphy (who also plays bass clarinet on one track), Mingus on bass and veteran Mingus drummer Dannie Richmond.
