Editorial Reviews

Product Description

Atlantic is one of the most revered jazz labels, and Rhino is proud to honor their 50th anniversary with a series of deluxe reissues of five historic and essential jazz albums. Each reissue contains the original record as released in state-of-the-art digital remastering from the original tapes, bonus tracks, and new liner notes in packaging that reproduces the original LP cover. The upgrade in quality with all the extras make these required listening for all serious music fans and great primers for beginners. The bass genius' most successful recording features the classic "Wednesday Night Prayer Meeting" and the rest of the original album, with four additional tracks.

Bassist Charles Mingus was always ready for a good fight. In the liner notes to this disc, Mingus says he wanted to respond to critics who said he didn't swing enough. And reply he did. Mingus gave whoever these absurd quibblers were some of the most ecstatic blues ("Moanin'" and "Cryin Blues"), gospel ("Wednesday Night Prayer Meeting"), and Dixieland ("My Jelly Roll Soul") the jazz world has ever heard. Along with his striking original compositions, the instrumental combination in Mingus's nonet remains unconventional: the frontline included four saxophonists and two trombonists without the counterweight of a trumpeter. The leader's sliding-octave bass lines and percussive slaps are totally rollicking, and the wild abandon in the group's playing is irrepressible. --Aaron Cohen
