Passions Of A Man: The Complete Atlantic Recordings (6CD + Book) Box Set

We are told ....

The greatest bassist leader jazz has ever known, Charles Mingus, with his spirited playing and spontaneity, always kept his ears and fingers on the pulse.

The albums this giant of music recorded for Atlantic between 1956 and 1961 are rightly considered his best. This lavish collection of the jazz legend’s entire mid-’50s to early ’60s Atlantic Records output features 6 CDs (and 40 tracks arranged in chronological order by recording date for maximum appreciation of Mingus’ evolution.

Including four previously unreleased alternate takes from the 1959 Blues & Roots sessions, many bonus tracks, plus an entire disc devoted to a complete 75-minute early ’60s Mingus interview with Atlantic co-founder/producer Nesuhi Ertegun, this set also contains a booklet featuring essays by Mingus experts Stefano Zenni and co-producer Andrew Homzy, along with original liner notes from the albums represented, a complete Atlantic discography, and many rare photos.

A reconfiguration of the original Rhino box set which brought these legendary recordings out on CD for the first time, Passions Of A Man is presented in a sleek, hard clamshell box, with the CDs held in elegant card sleeves and a glossy 112-page booklet.
