Charles Mingus - Black Saint & The Sinner Lady (Acoustic Sounds Series)
|Status:||ITEM CAN SHIP IMMEDIATELY|
A six-part suite with dramatic shifts in mood & tempo, Charles Mingus' "Black Saint and the Sinner Lady" broke new ground in both genre-defying composition and innovative recording techniques in 1963. There's nothing else in jazz quite like this collection recorded - astonishingly - in just one session on January 20, 1963. The album uses ornate ensemble orchestration to produce a sound somewhere between jazz and folk.
