Charles Mingus - Volume 6. Charles Mingus.

The Clown is an album by Charles Mingus released in September 1957 on Atlantic Records as SD-1260. It is the follow-up to 1956's Pithecanthropus Erectus and features the improvised narration of Jean Shepherd. All the tracks were recorded on March 12, 1957, except for "The Clown", recorded on February 13 of the same year.

SCENES IN THE CITY, the debut album by tenor and soprano saxophonist Branford Marsalis, offers an original perspective on the development of modern jazz, as he stakes out his own territory and approach. Calmly outlining his musical objectives, Branford's casualness masks a controversial mind at work. I'm not interested in trying to achieve a distinctive sound - that will take care of itself. The album's title track, "Scenes in the City," composed and recorded some twenty-odd years ago by Charles Mingus, is a kaleidoscope of styles. It is a nocturnal celebration of the vitality of the jazzman's lifestyle, recorded on-location in the streets of Manhattan. From the dingy rooming house to Le Figaro coffeehouse in Greenwich Village, Wendell Pierce's narration is aurally illustrated by the blues-bop-modern septet. Three of the remaining five compositions are by Branford.

This album has an average beat per minute of 103 BPM (slowest/fastest tempos: 71/178 BPM). Tracklist A Modern Jazz Symposium of Music and Poetry With Charles Mingus. 1. Scenes in the City. Charles Mingus and the Newport Rebels.

Recorded February 4, 1972 at Philharmonic Hall at Lincoln Center, New York City, originally released in 1973.

Biography by Richard S. Ginell. A legendary composer, innovator, and bass virtuoso who articulated contemporary emotional currents as well as anyone in jazz.

Unlike, say, John Coltrane’s recently unearthed Lost Album, Jazz in Detroit doesn’t date from a pivotal period in the leader’s career, feature an iconic lineup or introduce a wealth of unfamiliar repertoire. But what looks marginal on paper turns out to be sheer joy coming out of the speakers, thanks in large part to Mingus’ lesser-known yet enormously gifted sidemen: tenor saxophonist John Stubblefield, trumpeter Joe Gardner, pianist Don Pullen and drummer Roy Brooks

Mingus is an album by jazz bassist and composer Charles Mingus. The album was recorded in October and November 1960 in New York for Nat Hentoff's Candid label. 20 October and 11 November 1960 at Nola Penthouse Sound Studios, New York City. The Mingus album features one track, "Stormy Weather", recorded by the same quartet, plus two tracks recorded by a larger group featuring piano and additional horns. weaves together the themes from three compositions: Duke Ellington's "Main Stem", Thelonious Monk's "Straight, No Chaser" and Mingus's own "Fifty-First Street Blues"

Comments to album Charles Mingus - Scenes In The City
Truthcliff
Trumpeter Clarence Shaw, is also know as "Woody" Shaw. Bill Hardman very much in the Clifford Brown style of playing. Shaw is more of an innovator, so it has been said! Charles Mingus went so far as to say he was the best at that time. Shaw died at an early age.- thehappydrummer
Ballalune
Clarence Shaw (1926-1973 - died aged 47) and Woody Shaw (1944-1989 - died aged 44) are different musicians. While clearly each played trumpet, I am finding it difficult to comprehend quite how you confused the two. I admired Clarence greatly, but Woody was a star trumpeter who sold records insofar as jazz musicians sold records in the 1970s.
