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. He would first get an opportunity to record some of his own music with Hampton.

Mingus went on to co-found Debut Records with Max Roach in 1952, allowing him complete artistic control over the recording process.

Over the next two decades, Mingus' talent and creativity helped him become one of the most renowned bassists, composers, and bandleaders in the history of jazz.
