(SACD-HYBRID) Tijuana Moods is an album by Charles Mingus originally recorded in 1957 but not released until 1962. Tijuana Moods is a boisterous, swinging suite of songs that meld Bebop with the tequila haze of nightclubs, a flamenco striptease, serenading mariachis and the glare of the Mexican sun in the hedonist milieu of the border town. It is notable that the name "Charlie Mingus" appears on the cover of the original album. Mingus hated all nicknames derived from Charles ("Don't call me Charlie; that's not a man's name, that's a name for a horse"). All songs were composed by Mingus except "Flamingo." "This is the best record I ever made." -Charles Mingus, 1962. Newly remastered on hybrid SACD. Mastered by Bernie Grundman.
