This box set contains all the important Mingus Atlantic sessions, from the early strong sextet to the '60s adventurous experiments.
Whatever the morons say about the lack (!) of unreleased material, this is a definitive buy for anybody who ever tasted music.
While this specific cd contains both Pithecanthropus Erectus (Atlantic 1237, July 1956) and Teddy Charles' Word From Bird (Atlantic 1274, June 1958) - to which you'll refer for extended sessions details - the other discs contain The Clown, Blues and Roots, Oh Yeah, Tonight at Noon and Mingus at Antibes.
