    Mingus not always easily accessible, but a pivotal/transitional album in a giant’s career.

    Tough ‘competition’ in 1959 - Kind of Blue, Giant Steps, Take Five, Shape of Jazz to Come ... probably diminished or took some deserved attention away.

    Hi, thanks so much for your generous support of our charities. This thread should outline how, and where to pay. By the way, if you would like me to hold off on shipping until the other auctions are over, just let me know.

    Shipping costs will be as follows

    For up to 2 records shipping will costs $5.00. For insurance up to $50.00 please add 2.20 additional. If you would still like your items shipped via priority mail please let me know and I will get you a quote. For more than 3 LP's, please PM me for costs.

    Thank you again for your support. We appreciate it very much ! Your total will be X ( X = winning bids ) + 5.00. shipping.
