Mingus Plays Piano
spontaneous compositions and improvisations

Listen to Charlie Mingus as a pianist - for the first time - on record. He is uniquely himself, as this album demonstrates, playing with an impressive range of expressive power. Mingus has developed a personal piano style that expresses the more gentle, the more reflective and the more innocent elements of his personality.
