Widely regarded as one of the greatest jazz albums, Mingus Ah Um was originally released in 1959. Mingus pays tribute to many of his musical predecessors through songs like “Goodbye Pork Pie Hat”, “Open Letter To Duke”, and “Jelly Roll”, while “Fables Of Faubus” was named after Arkansas Governor Orval E. Faubus who wouldn’t allow integeration of Little Rock schools even after the U.S. Supreme Court ruled otherwise.
