Win Mingus Ah Um!

Charles Mingus: Mingus Ah Um Legacy Edition cover art

Another excellent 50th Anniversary 2-CD set is here from Sony Legacy. It’s Charles Mingus and Mingus Ah Um. On this release, you get the original album, plus the sequel on the second disc, Mingus Dynasty. And between the two CDs you’ve got bonus tracks from both albums and Ah Um alternate takes. Nice.

They’ve sent us a copy of the 2-CD set to give away. Want to win it? Easy. Just enter using the form below–and enter once a day–and if we draw your name when it’s all said and done, it’s yours. Good luck.

  • Thanks for running this Mingus contest! You’ve inspired me to take out my old LP from the Williamson Archives. Don’t you dig that cover?

  • It’s excellent. I think the thing I hadn’t realized before throwing these contests on the site is just how much seriously badass jazz came out in 1959.
