Hope this gets repressed or somebody else gets to use the ORG plates. I don't want to pay 100 dollars for a decent reissue of this record.

I learned about jazz from listening to a borrowed Weather Report Heavy Weather album and a borrowed Pat Metheny Watercolors album decades ago. I still think both albums are great. From those two albums I listened to just about every type of jazz album I could get my hands on and in the process got to know a fair bit about the genre. Most of the stuff I've listened to over years was pretty interesting. Charles Mingus had a lengthy career that saw him as one of the premier double bass players in jazz for decades. This album is a hard one to listen to even if you are familiar with the idiosyncrasies of modern jazz. Its very lengthy even for a jazz album for its time period-1959-which can be hard on listeners. I found myself growing tired of it near the end. At 13 tracks in length it comes in at over 70 minutes long-or about 20 minutes longer than most peoples tolerance level for a pure jazz album-or for any kind of an album for that matter. If someone is new to jazz I wouldn't recommend that this be the album they try listening to first. I would only recommend this album for people who have already listened to a fair bit of jazz. Personally I think that a Miles Davis album is the better jazz listening experience.

There was something completely out of tune in the production of this re-release. Played correctly at 45 rpm the given playing time does not correspond with actual playing time. Compared to the original recording, all tracks are up-tempo. Doesn't sound right at all. ORG did not respond to complaint

Essential for any Jazz collection, steeped in the Blues and the history of jazz, this is one of Mingus' more accessible recordings, and would possibly rank as his best, although not necessarily my favourite.

I feel I need to comment on this because I have no info about this Mispress at all. I bought the album brand new for $11 Canadian, put it my stereo and already I noticed something was wrong as my stereo read only 4 tracks. I took out the disc, thinking they packaged the wrong one, and when I looked at it it had all the 'Mingus Ah Um' info on the disc face. Even the CAT # was what it should be. I then put it back in the stereo to find out what was on it and wow, it was the tracks from Herbie Hancock's classic "Head Hunters". Needless to say I find it pretty odd and I'm curious how many of these are out there because being on CD I'd image there's a lot as pressing plants usually do runs of about 2000-5000 at a time for a classic like this. Because it was so cheap I just decided to keep it and bought the brand new 180 gram vinyl version that just came out in 2008. Now I can listen to this classic in peace!

This is definatly a classic Mingus album but it's not my favorite overall. There's some awesome tracks, like Better Git It In Your Soul, Boogie Stop Shuffle (My personal fav), and the bonus track GG Train is simply awesome. This album is a great one for that long drive and if you want to show anyone new to jazz a great album with some soul then this is one to give them. I think out of any artist on this discs lineup Dannie Richmond is the best. He's one of the most under-rated drummers of his time I think and he helps carry some of these tracks very well and seems to play with ease.

My problem with the CD reissue is that some of the tracks are the unedited ones and I actually think there's a mistake in the track Bird Calls where someone blows their horn a bit early. Not sure. I think in this case I'd prefer the original LP over the CD reissue but the bonus tracks are pretty great.
