Sometimes known as Mingus Five, there are several compositions on 1963 recording MingusMingusMingusMingusMingus which had already been recorded on previous albums, notably Goodbye Pork Pie Hat - a tribute to tenor player Lester Young, and Better Get Hit in Yo Soul, inspired by early gospel music, both of which appeared on Mingus Ah Um in 1959. The main inspiration for Charles Mingus was Duke Ellington, with whom he played briefly in the early 50s before having the dubious distinction of being personally fired by the Duke. Mood Indigo is of course an Ellington classic.
