Release Date:03/17/2015;Notes:Limited vinyl LP repressing of this 1963 album by the jazz great. Bassist/composer Charles Mingus is one of the most radical figures in American music. This album broke new ground in both genre-defying composition and innovative recording techniques. A six-part suite with dramatic shifts in mood and tempo, the Black Saint and the Sinner Lady features the three-way brass dialogue of trumpets, trombone and tuba, swooping reeds and awe-inspiring rhythm section. Balancing delicate Spanish modes and Ellington like themes, the ensemble breaks into a divine cacophony of group improvisation on par with free jazz giants like Ornette Coleman or Cecil Taylor. In his best-known essay, "Psychotic Reactions and Carburetor Dung," Lester Bangs praises, "the experience of the first few listening's to a record so total, so mind-twisting, that you authentically can say you'll never be quite the same again. Black Saint and the Sinner Lady did that, and a very few others. They're events you remember all your life, like your first real orgasm." This long out-of-print vinyl release has been carefully remastered from the original master tapes.;Track List:1. Solo Dancer (Stop Look and Listen Sinner Jim Whitney);2. Duet Solo Dancers (Hearts' Beat and Shades in Physical Embraces);3. Group Dancers (Soul Fusion/Freewoman and Oh This Freedom's Slave Cries);4. Trio and Group Dancers (Stop Look and Sing Songs of Revolutions);5. Single Solos and Group Dance (Saint and Sinner Join in Merriment on Battle Front);6. Group and Solo Dance (Of Love Pain and Passioned Revolt Then Farewell My Beloved Til It's Freedom Day)
