Mike Tarrani Top Contributor: Drums. Verified Purchase. Had this album been released in instead of languishing in Atlantic's vault for a year it may well have been ranked up there with Ah Um.
The latter was one of four album that changed jazz, all of which were released in I am convinced that this one would have upped the number to five.
Hindsight, though, is an indulgence. The best evidence of this album's greatness can be had by listening to the sound samples on this page. Anyone who had heard "Haitian Fight Song" shouldn't have been surprised that such an album was well within Mingus ' range, but jazz's self-appointed guardians have long greeted innovation with reactionary distaste. After Blues and Roots , there could be no question of Mingus ' firm grounding in the basics, nor of his deeply felt affinity with them.
Whether the music is explicitly gospel-based -- like the groundbreaking classic "Wednesday Night Prayer Meeting" -- or not, the whole album is performed with a churchy fervor that rips through both the exuberant swingers and the aching, mournful slow blues. With a lineup including John Handy and Jackie McLean on alto, Booker Ervin on tenor, frequent anchor Pepper Adams on baritone, and Jimmy Knepper and Willie Dennis on trombones, among others, Blues and Roots isn't hurting for fiery soloists, and they help make the album perhaps the most soulful in Mingus ' discography.
