Tip On Style Jacket

This 1960 recording, his second on Candid, is absolutely one of the (many) great 60s Mingus recordings. This is one of the large number of totally fantastic jazz albums that were released by Candid during their short lived lifetime in 1960/1961 and is the first time this has been reissued from the original masters. Hugely personally recommended!

“At the time of this recording, Mingus had been working regularly with the piano-less quartet of Eric Dolphy, Ted Curson and Dannie Richmond. The same group featured on the 1960 Candid release, Charles Mingus Presents Charles Mingus. The Mingus album, also recorded that year, features one track, "Stormy Weather," recorded with that same quartet, and two tracks recorded with a larger group featuring piano and additional horns.
Of note, "MDM (Monk Duke & Me)” consumes the majority of this album. The piece consists of three intertwining themes - Duke Ellington's “Main Stem”, Thelonious Monk's “Straight, No Chaser”, and Mingus' “Fifty First Street Blues.”
