Charles Mingus The Black Saint And The Sinner Lady on Hybrid SACD
In January of 1963, bassist and composer Charles Mingus recorded a very personal and socially conscious work he titled The Black Saint And The Sinner Lady. Each composition, from the opening "Solo Dancer" to the closing "Group and Solo Dance" was a musical expression of Mingus' philosophy of life, love and the world around him. For Mingus and the musicians that joined him; Charlie Mariano, alto saxophone; Jake Byard, piano; Jay Berliner, guitar; Don Butterfield, tuba; Dick Hafer, tenor saxophone and flute; Quentin Jackson, trombone; The Black Saint And The Sinner Lady was much more than just another album, it was a jazz ballet performed by a small ensemble. It has become a landmark event.
