I swear I did not see this post before putting on the very same album an hour later.

Afterwards while cooking fish and couscous I put on "Nothing but the Blues," with Herb Ellis, Ray Brown, Roy Eldridge, and Stan Getz.

Question of Mingus's best album arose above. My knee-jerk response is Mingus Ah Um, but whenever I pull The Black Saint... off the shelf I think "damn, I always overlook this, it's probably his best".

Question is moot, IMO - Mingus made so many really great records, asking which one is the best is almost pointless.  But both of those you mention are surely contenders.

Holmboe: Symphony No 1 - Aarhus Symphony Orchestra conducted by Owain Arwel Hughes - enjoyable but not, I suspect, typical. Not lost after all, I burnt it to a CD, now retrieved from the vaults.

Ada Moore - Jazz Workshop (1955)

I know it sounds harsh to say it, but this is exactly what Sarah Vaughan would sound like if she recorded drunk
