THE PRESSING

Stereo 1963 Original on Impulse. Orange and Black ABC Paramount labels. Runout is stamped STEREO and VAN GELDER.

THIS COPY

Not without some crackle and pop, this is a pretty great copy of this record, which I very rarely see originals of. Cover is intact with a few dings (see photos).

Two of my favorite albums of all time are on 60s Impulse and produced by Bob Thiele: this one and It Serves You Right to Suffer by JL Hooker.

I’m not alone in my admiration. Allmusic guide gives this release 5 stars and says, “It closes out the most productive and significant chapter of Mingus’ career, and one of the most fertile, inventive hot streaks of any composer in jazz history.”

The 11-piece band absolutely smokes! A truly wonderful record.

Note: if this original is too pricey for you, there’s a pretty good Speakers Corner repress still available from last month here.
