Blues & Roots is an album by Charles Mingus, recorded in 1959 and released in 1960. It has been reissued on CD, by Atlantic Records and Rhino. Mingus explained the birth of this record in the album's liner notes: This record is unusual-it presents only one part of my musical world, the blues.

In response to critical carping that his ambitious, evocative music somehow didn't swing enough, Charles Mingus returned to the earthiest and earliest sources of black musical expression, namely the blues, gospel, and old-time New Orleans jazz. The resulting LP, Blues and Roots, isn't quite as wildly eclectic as usual, but it ranks as arguably Mingus' most joyously swinging outing.

Been listening to jazz for almost 20 years it took me a long time to understand and appreciate the music of Monk,but up until this very moment i think i never appreciated Mingus music Until no. .Mingus gave this album to my dad to arrange for the Mingus MIngus Mingus Mingus Mingus album from 1963. He still has it along with some score sheets from Mingus. These will be family heirlooms for generations to come.

Blues & Roots is a singular entry in Mingus’ body of work, a show of myopic focus on swing, with no tangents into the avant-garde or classical that had made his past records thrash and foam with personality and range (The violent ambience of Pithecanthropus Erectus or the future experimental, almost ballet-like affectations of his masterpiece Black Saint and the Sinner Lady). Yet for all its supposed primitivism in aesthetic form, Blues feels as vital and important as any of his best; six shots of a heady, unyielding brew
