Charles Mingus 'Pre-Bird (Acoustic Sounds)' LP
For this 1961 release, Mingus chose music composed before he heard the revolutionary playing of Charlie Parker. The album features large ensembles and includes two swing-era contrapuntal mash-ups, with one song playing out of the left channel and another from the right.
