Digitally remastered and expanded edition of this album from the Jazz great. Contains Charles Mingus' complete original album Blues & Roots, which was almost entirely based on the Blues. Mostly improvised on the spot (Mingus didn't explain the basics of each tune to the musicians until the last minute), Blues & Roots was highly praised during it's time, and has since become a true classic. As a bonus, we have added the master takes and the alternate to the Blues recorded during a rare studio session produced by Mingus in 1957 for one of his favorite sidemen, Shafi Hadi also featuring Pepper Adams and Dannie Richmond. Essential Jazz Classics.
