Full title: Charles Mingus Presents Charles Mingus. Personnel: Charles Mingus (bass); Eric Dolphy (alto saxophone, bass clarinet); Ted Curson (trumpet); Dannie Richmond (drums). Recorded at Nola Penthouse Studio, New York, New York on October 20, 1960. Includes liner notes by Nat Hentoff. Digitally remastered by Mark Tomase. This 1960 recording features Mingus with a quartet, a small ensemble in comparison to many of his other records. The circumstances were unique; this was to be Eric Dolphy and Ted Curson's last recording with the bassist after playing with him for many months (although this certainly wasn't to be Mingus and Dolphy's final artistic pairing). This personnel crisis, rather than resulting in a stiff and stressed performance, produced one of Mingus' finest albums. The songs here feature a fiery amalgam of blues, gospel, and folk with group improvisation. The band attempted to duplicate the feel of a club performance without the attendant hazards and sound problems; Mingus had the lights dimmed to simulate an evening gig, and he playfully banters to a non-existent audience. The version of "Original Faubus Fables" on this album is notable for the inclusion of its talking/singing sections condemning the racist governor of Georgia, which were excluded from a previously released version of the song.
