Influenced by both jazz and gospel music, Charles Mingus gained fame as a bass prodigy in the early 1940s.
He toured the West Coast with Louis Armstrong in 1943 and was performing with Lionel Hampton's band by the end of the decade, with whom he would first get an opportunity to record some of his own music.
Mingus went on to co-found Debut Records Max Roach in 1952 allowing him complete artistic control over the recording process.
He would become among the most renowned bass innovator, composer, and bandleader in jazz.
