RAREST ON DEBUT (LP)
12" Vinyl D
A great selection of rare recordings from the Debut label (1952-1957).
Created in 1952 by bassist Charles Mingus and drummer Max Roach, Debut label was a first attempt by Jazz musicians to get their music recorded and released under their own control. A short lived experiment (1952-1957) that produced some memorable works. The vibrant spirit of Mingus lives through this great selection of rare Debut recordings with himself as leader of two different line up (quintet / octet) and as bassist of the Hank Jones trio and the Thad Jones quintet.
