Duke Ellington, Charlie Mingus & Max Roach - Money Jungle Deluxe Gatefold Edition VINYL LP DOL840HG

Deluxe gatefold edition of Money Jungle by pianist Duke Ellington with double bassist Charles Mingus and drummer Max Roach.

The title track is a 12-bar blues that opens with strongly played notes from Mingus, then Ellington joins in with dissonant chords; Roach supports using ride cymbal, snare and bass drum. "Fleurette Africaine" is a ballad developed from a simple melody stated on the piano, and features "Mingus' floating bassline and Roach's understated drumming". "Very Special" is another 12-bar blues, possibly improvised. These three compositions, plus "Wig Wise", with its "angular, descending line", were written specifically for this album. On "Caravan", Ellington plays the melody in low octaves, adding "Webern-like notes on the top", imitating an orchestral sound.
