Sunday Music & Charles Mingus & Better Git It in Your Soul

From Mingus Ah Um (1959).

There’s not that much gospel themed jazz around, but Mingus and Cannonball Adderly must account for a good chunk of it. This is pretty ahead for 1959! It has been one of my favorite jazz albums for a long time, though it’s been a while since I’ve heard it. I used to have it on vinyl. John Handy, Booker Ervin and Shafi Hadi (sax), Jimmy Knepper (trombone), Horace Parlan (piano), Charles Mingus (bass), Dannie Richmond (drums).
