Mingus Ah Um is a studio album by American jazz musician Charles Mingus, released in 1959 by Columbia Records. It was his first album recorded for Columbia. The cover features a painting by S. Neil Fujita. The album was inducted into the Grammy Hall of Fame in 2013. The Penguin Guide to Jazz on CD calls this album "an extended tribute to ancestors" (and awards it one of their rare crowns), and Mingus's musical forebears figure largely throughout.

The above tale gave Mingus the idea of mocking Faubus not only with the music, for which he wrote horn lines that sound like a group ridiculing someone, but also include a vocal exchange between him and Dannie Richmond to eliminate any confusion about who is the subject of that ridicule.
