Listeners will find some of the greatest music ever recorded is right here on this 4 CD box set that presents eight classic albums; well over five hours of music. This is Mingus still at the peak of his creativity and innovation (and, just for the record, while Tijuana Moods was indeed released in 1962, it was recorded in 1957), penning and performing new work, figuring out new interpretations of old work (along with an Ellington cover or two) and performing live improvisations. You get a wide spectrum of Mingus's talents here. While it may be true, as has often been said, that listening to Mozart may boost one's cognition and ratiocination, we're here to tell you that when it comes to getting a boost in innovation and creativity, then Mozart needs to cede the stereo to the music of Mingus!Charles Mingus – The Complete Albums Collections 1960-1963
