Money Jungle (Remastered)

Format: CD
Release Date: 7/16/2002 Original Release Date: 1962
Style(s): Swing
Availability: Low Stock

Not in a mood to simply rework older compositions, the bulk of this classic 1962 album focused on music The Duke wrote specifically for the session. The title track is a thunderous opener, a blues that might be classified somewhere between post-bop and avant-garde. The gem of the album’s seven original tracks is most certainly the fragile, somewhat haunting ballad, "Fleurette Africaine". A total of eight bonus tracks fill out this essential remastered edition. Every jazz fan should own a copy of this sensational recording session. – All Music Guide
