"... it is finely crafted throughout and equal to his best in many spots. In a sense, there is no such thing as mediocre Mingus."
- Blogcritics.org

"... Mingus' most wholly realized date so far as a leader-writer or, more accurately, it's the one that has most directly communicated to me in terms of emotions as well as concepts ..."
- DownBeat

"... an overlooked gem in the extensive Mingus discography. The band is simmering with intensity while also stretching out into savvy uses of space. It’s another fine example of Mingus as bandleader and composer. This stuff is early, but there’s hardly a growing pain to be heard, just the development of a genius in jazz as he comes into full possession of his many talents, eccentricities and oversized personality and zeal."
- PopMatters.com

This reissue contains most of the songs originally released in 1955 on a pair of 10-inch records under the title Jazzical Moods. These sessions belong as much to clarinetist and saxophonist John LaPorta as to Charles Mingus himself; LaPorta received equal credit on the original vinyl jackets. In addition to his stellar playing, LaPorta wrote or co-wrote two of the four original songs on the album. The other two tunes are rearrangements of the standards What Is This Thing Called Love? and Stormy Weather.

What is High-Resolution Audio?

High-resolution audio offers the highest-fidelity available, far surpassing the sound quality of traditional CDs. When you listen to music on a CD or tracks purchased via consumer services such as iTunes, you are hearing a low-resolution version of what was actually recorded and mastered in the studio. ProStudioMasters offers the original studio masters — exactly as the artist, producers and sound engineers mastered them — for download, directly to you.

What do I need for playback?

You may need additional software / hardware to take full advantage of the higher 24-bit high-res audio formats, but any music lover that has heard 16-bit vs 24-bit will tell you it's worth it!
