Description:Japanese Blu-spec CD2 pressing of this classic album. The Blue-spec format takes Blu-ray disc technology to create CD's which are compatible with normal CD players but provides ultra high quality sound. For more information about Blu-spec CD, click here.

"Charles Mingus' debut for Columbia, Mingus Ah Um is a stunning summation of the bassist's talents and probably the best reference point for beginners... Mingus' compositions and arrangements were always extremely focused, assimilating individual spontaneity into a firm consistency of mood, and that approach reaches an ultra-tight zenith on Mingus Ah Um. The band includes longtime Mingus stalwarts already well versed in his music, like saxophonists John Handy, Shafi Hadi, and Booker Ervin; trombonists Jimmy Knepper and Willie Dennis; pianist Horace Parlan; and drummer Dannie Richmond. Their razor-sharp performances tie together what may well be Mingus' greatest, most emotionally varied set of compositions... It simply isn't possible to single out one Mingus album as definitive, but Mingus Ah Um comes the closest."
--Steve Huey

Recorded 1959. 1996 20-bit digital mastering. This special limited Blu-spec CD2 edition was released in Japan on September 11, 2013. Blu-spec CD is compatible with normal CD players.
