Charles Mingus
Mingus Mingus Mingus Mingus Mingus

  (Item #: mingumingumingu_1808_1902) 

Our Price: $149.99

  • This outstanding vintage stereo copy boasts solid Double Plus (A++) sound, or close to it, from start to finish
  • Impulse released a Heavy Vinyl pressing in 1995, as did Speakers Corner in 2003, but neither can hold a candle to the real thing
  • Mingus was a genius and the original music on this record is just one more album's worth of proof of the undeniability of that fact
  • 5 stars: "It closes out the most productive and significant chapter of his career, and one of the most fertile, inventive hot streaks of any composer in jazz history."

Charles Mingus
Oh Yeah

  (Item #: minguohyea_1903x) 

Our Price: $149.99

  • This surprisingly good sounding reissue of Mingus's brilliant Oh Yeah from 1962 boasts outstanding Double Plus (A++) grades - fairly quiet vinyl too
  • Tubey Magical, lively and clear, with three-dimensionality that will fill your listening room from wall to wall
  • Phil Iehle and Tom Dowd made up the engineering team for these sessions, which explains why the best copies of the album sound so damn good
  • A raucous (and ROCKIN') deviation from traditional jazz, this compilation incorporates R&B and soul influences - Mingus even lends his rich vocal stylings to a few songs
  • 5 stars: "Oh Yeah is probably the most offbeat Mingus album ever, and that's what makes it so vital."

Our Price: $99.99

  • This is vintage Sixties Living Stereo at its best - big, rich and Tubey Magical like you will not believe

  • 5 stars: "Mingus at the time said that this was his greatest recording, and it certainly ranks near the top. The passionate playing, exciting ensembles, and high-quality compositions make this a real gem, and it represents one of Charles Mingus' finest hours. "

Charles Mingus - Me Myself an Eye

Our Shootout Winner from 2015

  (Item #: mingumemys_2015) 



A distinguished member of the Better Records Jazz Hall of Fame.

If you hear something that sounds like Frank Zappa's music circa Waka Jawaka don't be surprised, we heard it too. Mingus and Zappa were both eccentric geniuses so it only makes sense that they arrived at some of the same musical ideas as they evolved as composers.

Charles Mingus - Mingus Ah Um

Our Shootout Winner from 2008

  (Item #: minguahum_2008) 



A distinguished member of the Better Records Jazz Hall of Fame.

This Columbia Six Eye pressing is THE BEST COPY OF THIS ALBUM WE’VE EVER HEARD! We were lucky enough to acquire a few clean copies over the last few months, and this was the best sounding of them all. It’s got that tubey magical late-’50s jazz sound: the brass is incredibly full-bodied, the bottom end has real weight, and the overall sound is amazingly rich and warm. Clean early pressings of this album go for big bucks in stores and on eBay these days with no guarantee whatsover of good sound. This one isn’t cheap either but at least you know that it’s going to sound wonderful.

Charles Mingus - Mingus Ah Um

Our Shootout Winner from 2018

  (Item #: minguahum_2018) 



A distinguished member of the Better Records Jazz Hall of Fame.

This freakishly good 360 beat our best 6 Eye Stereo original, not to mention every other pressing in our shootout as well - darn quiet too. Another amazing 30th Street Studio recording by the legendary Fred Plaut - if you like Kind of Blue, here's another album with that sound (same year, same studio, same engineer).

Charles Mingus - Mingus Revisited

Our Shootout Winner from 2015

  (Item #: mingurevis_2015) 



A distinguished member of the Better Records Jazz Hall of Fame.

This copy sounds like a big room full of musicians (25 in all!) playing live, which it surely was. The Tubey Magical richness of this 1960 recording is breathtaking - no modern record can touch it. Allmusic gives it 4 stars and we think it's maybe even a better than that.

On both sides the best sound can be heard starting with the second track, but on side one the first track was very spacious and had a fuller sounding piano than practically any other we played.

Originals vs. Reissues

  (Item #: minguahum_testimonial) 



The letter below sheds some light on a vitally important mastering issue: specifically the answer to the question, Which are better sounding, originals or reissues? The letter finishes this way.

Incidentally, just a couple of days ago I conducted my own shootout between the Red Label "Mingus Ah Um" I bought from you a few weeks back and my pristine, Six Eye White Label Promo original. To my surprise, you were absolutely right about the greater clarity of the former (starting with the snare drum on the first track).

Mingus
The Black Saint and the Sinner Lady

  (Item #: mingublack_1906_2) 


  • A very solid copy, with each side earning Hot Stamper grades - exceptionally quiet vinyl too
  • The sound here is big, rich and full-bodied with a huge bottom end and tons of energy
  • 5 stars: "The Black Saint and the Sinner Lady is one of the greatest achievements in orchestration by any composer in jazz history... a masterpiece of rich, multi-layered texture and swirling tonal colors, manipulated with a painter's attention to detail... arguably Mingus' most brilliant moment."
