Artist - Charles Mingus
Title - The Black Saint and the Sinner Lady
Format - 180-Gram Vinyl LP
Label - Verve Acoustic Sounds Series
Mastered by Ryan Smith
Described by Mingus himself as “ethnic folk-dance music,” The Black Saint & The Sinner Lady is a single song cycle rather than a traditional jazz album of separate tracks.
The intricate arrangements and raw emotional swings of the piece make it a highlight of Mingus’ career, and one of the most compelling listens in jazz.
