“Roland Kirk’s Message”

One more Mingus …. on piano this time…

  1. An unsung Mingus piano recording which is all but forgotten now. Ming paid a wonderful tribute to the original Captain Kirk here, Kirk having earlier contributed to Mingus’ “Oh Yeah” — an ablum which is quirky enough to be classic (my opinion of course).

    I have an original first pressing LP of Mingus Plays Piano. Awesome stuff from one of the greatest composers this country has ever had.

    • I LOVE “Oh Yeah” too. This album, I stumbled upon just a few years ago and I was so happy to find it. I had no idea. None. I am so happy to have found it. It’s one of those recordings you put on and it just becomes the atmosphere for a few days….
