For the first time on vinyl, Charles Mingus’s great score for the legendary 1959 directorial debut of John Cassavetes, Shadows. Much has been said about the controversial relationship between these two masters. “The score encapsulates Cassavetes’ and Mingus’s unique approaches to both improvisation and composition in their respective media, illuminating the oppositional nature of jazz to mainstream cultural production and the underbelly of race relations in 1950’s America” –Ross Lipman, “Mingus, Cassavetes, and the Birth of a Jazz Cinema.” “Shady transparent” vinyl. Limited edition of 500.
