Presented here is the complete original album Money Jungle (United Artists UAS 15017), which was the only trio collaboration of Duke Ellington with Charles Mingus and Max Roach. Both youngsters greatly admired Duke. Ellington himself briefly featured Roach and Mingus in his band during the early 1950s, and expressed on multiple occasions his appreciation for the latter’s compositions. Most of the repertoire here was especially written for the date, while the only old tunes they recorded were “Warm Valley”, “Caravan”, and “Solitude”. A complete 1953 Ellington trio session has been added as a bonus.
