Reissue with latest 2014 DSD remastering. Comes with liner notes. Mingus Dynasty is an album by Charles Mingus, recorded and released in 1959. It is the companion album to the classic Mingus Ah Um and was inducted in the Grammy Hall of Fame in 1999. Brilliant work by Mingus – recorded right around the same time as his legendary Mingus Ah Um album for Columbia! The group features some of Mingus’ best sidemen – like Booker Ervin, Jimmy Knepper, John Handy, Roland Hanna and Don Ellis – and the tracks have that wild mix of emotion, tight composition, and freewheeling soloing that made Mingus’ late 50’s output so compelling. Includes «Diane», «Song With Orange», «Gunslinging Bird», and «Far Wells, Mill Valley». Plus the CD includes the bonus track «Strollin» and unedited versions of «Slop», «Song With Orange», «Gunslinging Bird», and «Things Ain’t What They Used to Be» – all of which were originallly shaved down for release on the original album, now here in their proper form.
