With a 64-page book chock full of charts, performance notes, rare photos and more, this book gets the essential Mingus into your hands. And the (included) pair of Downloadable CDs, featuring performances by members of the Mingus Big Band, brings the music to life. Study along with the transcriptions, or just enjoy playing along with the classic Mingus songs.

Michael Brecker calls these new collections "a fantastic resource for music students and professionals alike" and Billy Taylor says they make "the music of Mingus become more accessible than ever."

The transcriptions of Mingus's best and most popular songs are clear and accurate - some are even in Mingus' hand! And interesting trivia and biographical information abounds; there's even a reproduction of his comic book and his "CAT-alog" for toilet training your cat! Throughout the book, you'll find various writings and interesting asides from Mingus himself.

This book pack includes:

  • Links to download two CDs, featuring both trio and quartet versions of 14 classic Mingus compositions performed by Mingus Big Band members
  • musical charts (in bass clef, written for string bass)
  • performance notes
  • rare photographs
  • a biography
  • historical commentary
But mostly there's the music. Some of Mingus' best known tunes are here, transcribed for you to play along with the members of the Mingus big band - in both trio and quartet versions.

Featured Songs Include:
  • Fables of Faubus
  • Goodbye Pork Pie Hat
  • Gunslinging Bird
  • Jelly Roll
  • Peggy's Blue Skylight
  • Portrait
  • Slippers
  • Sue's Changes
  • and more
