Very nice set of Mingus' legendary Candid recordings – produced in 1960, after Mingus angrily departed Columbia records, and was finally given the freedom to work in the way that he wanted. The recordings are some of Mingus best – and they feature a righteous anger and sheer jazz power that's unmatched by few other recordings.

Originally released on the Candid label, it's strange to think that this album isn't more well known to jazz fans, considering some of the big names that appear and some of the inspired soloing they unleash. Dannie Richmond, Mingus' quintessential drummer is the only one who appears on all tracks, along with Mingus, but appearing on and off are more than capable sidemen such as Booker Ervin, Charles MacPehrson, Jo Jones and Tommy Flanagan, but it's the last five tracks that are truly amazing. Mingus manages to bridge two schools of jazz, swing and avant-garde, like the bridge never existed, bringing together colossal swing trumpeter Roy Eldridge and free jazz prodigy Eric Dolphy. The highlight of the album is a lengthy rendition of 'Body and Soul', which features some truly awe-inspiring solos by Eldridge, Dolphy, and trombonist Jimmy Knepper, and the everpresent and always fiery boom of Mingus' bass, keeping superb time and swinging like crazy while letting rip some of his notorious vocal exclamations to push the music along. The rest of the disc rarely matches that energy, but this is still essential music for any Mingus fan.
