Description

180-GRAM LIMITED EDITION BLUE VINYL – COMPLETE ALBUM + BONUS TRACK. Contains new specially prepared liner notes by Penguin Guide to Jazz’s writer BRIAN MORTON and by Paris’ prestigious JAZZ MAGAZINE

The complete original album Money Jungle (United Artists UAS 15017), which was the only trio collaboration of Duke Ellington with Charles Mingus and Max Roach.

Most of the repertoire here was especially composed for the date, while the only standard tunes recorded were Warm Valley, Caravan, and Solitude.

“This album is astonishing -this is Ellington the soloist in some of the fastest company around. I’ve never heard Ellington play as he does on this album; Mingus and Roach, especially Mingus, push him so strongly that one can almost hear Ellington show them who’s the boss -and he dominates both of them, which is no mean accomplishment.” ***** – Down Beat (Don DeMicheal)
