Rhino will salute Mingus with an updated version of his 1957 trio recording with pianist Hampton Hawes and drummer Dannie Richmond. The seven original tracks have been expanded for the upcoming release, with eight previously unreleased session recordings discovered by chance recently in the London Parlophone vaults. The bonus tracks include different takes for all but one album track ("Laura"), plus two blues originals.
MINGUS THREE: DELUXE EDITION will be available on April 22 – Mingus’ birthday – as a 180-gram double-LP set ($34.98) and as a double-CD set ($24.98). The music will also be available from digital and streaming services on the same day, and are available now for pre-order via Rhino.com.
