Charles Mingus

Tijuana Moods


Recorded in New York in 1957 though not released until 1962 'Tijuana Moods' was according to Mingus himself 'the best album i ever made' The music is a vigorous stew of Mexican rhythms and sophisticated postEllington arrangements further invigorated by the soloing of trumpeter Clarence Shaw trombonist Jimmy Knepper and particularly saxophonist Shafi Hadi Mingus's vision of Tijuana was clearly sensual the music evoking strippers frenetic street scenes and heartbroken lovers Making use of suite like thematic material and various forms of counterpoint the group sounds much larger than it is and points toward Mingus's later experiments with form the bristling sound and spirit of the music however are its primary attractions a remarkable place where Mexican fantasy and hard bop meet 180 Gram vinylA
