Mingus, Charles / Hampton Hawes / Danny Richmond - Mingus Three Mingus Three
Jazz New - LP JLP 1054 Jubilee
Sealed Mono Original. Most Often Heard In Large Ensembles And Rarely In A Trio Context, Charles Mingus Joined Forces With Pianist Hampton Hawes For This 1957 Studio Date. It Features Four Standards, Two Originals By The Bassist, And A Jam By The Group Credited To Hawes. While There's Nothing Particularly Arresting Or Startling About The Date, The Relationship Between The Two Ostensible Co-Leaders Is A Good Case Study In Group Dynamics When Deference Between Two Strong-Willed Individualists Turns Into A Certain Amount Of Compromise. Drummer Danny Richmond Is Not So Much The Peacemaker Or Even Mediator, And He Is The One With The Most Common Sense Who Actually Pulls This Triad Into A Simpatico Unit, Cooling The Embers With His Steady, Willful-In-Its-Own-Right Playing. As Complex As The Music Of Mingus Tends To Be, It's Nice To Hear What He Does In A More Simplified Area. His "Back Home Blues" Is So Basic As His Bass Leads Out, While The Mingus Chart "Dizzy Moods" Is Deeper Within An Easier Swing, Allowing Darker Colors To Fully But Slowly Blossom. The Most Intriguing Selection Comes At The End, As "Laura" Sounds Derived From "Tea For Two," With The Hardy Upright Of Mingus Sallying Forth About This Imaginary Woman Made Real Through This Poignant Song. Some Six Years Later, Mingus, Duke Ellington, And Max Roach Would Record The Controversial Trio Effort Money Jungle, So In Many Ways This Album Is A Prelude To That All-Star Combination, Both One-Shots And Definitely Sidebars To The Careers Of All Of These Brilliant Jazzmen.... more details
