Blues & Roots is an album by Charles Mingus, recorded in 1959 and released in 1960. It has been reissued on CD, by Atlantic Records and Rhino. Mingus explained the birth of this record in the album's liner notes: This record is unusual-it presents only one part of my musical world, the blues.

In response to critical carping that his ambitious, evocative music somehow didn't swing enough, Charles Mingus returned to the earthiest and earliest sources of black musical expression, namely the blues, gospel, and old-time New Orleans jazz. The resulting LP, Blues and Roots, isn't quite as wildly eclectic as usual, but it ranks as arguably Mingus' most joyously swinging outing.

Been listening to jazz for almost 20 years it took me a long time to understand and appreciate the music of Monk,but up until this very moment i think i never appreciated Mingus music Until no. .Mingus gave this album to my dad to arrange for the Mingus MIngus Mingus Mingus Mingus album from 1963. He still has it along with some score sheets from Mingus. These will be family heirlooms for generations to come.

Album Blues & Roots. Blues & Roots Lyrics. My music is as varied as my feelings are, or the world is, and one composition or one kind of composition expresses only part or the total world of my music. In the notes for another album, I go into more detail as to why my pieces are so different from one another and don't have one specific, alleviated mood, sound or style. This record is unusual- it presents only one part of my musical world, the blues. He wanted to give them a barrage of sold music, churchy, blues, swinging, earth.
