Special MONO edition - limited Edition!
Blues & Roots is an album by Charles Mingus, recorded in 1959 and released in 1960. Mingus explained the birth of this record in the album's liner notes: "This record is unusual—it presents only one part of my musical world, the blues. A year ago,
Nesuhi Ertegün suggested that I record an entire blues album in the style of Haitian Fight Song (in Atlantic LP 1260), because some people, particularly critics, were saying I didn't swing enough. He wanted to give them a barrage of soul music: churchy, blues, swinging, earthy. I thought it over. I was born swinging and clapped my hands in church as a little boy, but I've grown up and I like to do things other than
just swing. But blues can do more than just swing. So I agreed." (via Wikipedia)

 Joining Mingus are Jackie McLean, John Handy, Booker Ervin, 
Pepper Adams, Jimmy Knepper, Willie Dennis, Dannie Richmond, Horace Parlan & Mal Waldron.
