I guarantee you will like Mingus Mingus Mingus Mingus Mingus.

I also always recommend Let My Children Hear Music but it is from a later era so it may not be your thing

Charles Mingus Sextet W/ Eric Dolphy - Cornell 1964 is a pretty amazing live album that was only released 5 years ago. I'm especially fond of it, because I've been to quite a few shows at Bailey Hall, the venue where it was recorded.

If you're really diggin' Mingus, I can't recommend Art Blakey & The Jazz Messengers enough. Both have that intense orchestral post-bop sound. Blakey is a bit more high energy than Mingus, which lends to the appeal. I recommend Moanin' or Free for All to start out with.

Default Instrumental Jazz w/Harp and Baseline

I'm so lost in looking for a certain kind of jazz. It is instrumental for the most part and the main instruments I hear are the harp and a smooth baseline. I have no idea where to begin to look for this kind of jazz so please excuse my ignorance. I heard this type of jazz for the first time back in the 80s. The melodies are very romantic and beautiful with a lot of personality and mood. I think the harp is usually the star of this type I'm talking about. Can anyone point me in the right direction? Thanks in advance.

You may be thinking of Andreas Vollenweider.

Default Swing Music

Hey people, what are the names of some good bands/artists/song for swing dancing? In particular, music suited to East Coast style would be great =)
