Having said that, Mingus Dynasty is still an excellent album — in fact, it’s a testament to just how high a level Mingus was working on that an album of this caliber could have gotten lost in the shuffle. […]

I’ve been on a bit of a Mingus kick lately (I’ve been known to go for weeks at a time listening to virtually nothing but his music)and while in the midst of it, I just realized how great this album was. Now, I’ve always liked this one a lot, but it just hit me that it’s GREAT, one of the top five Mingus studio albums. […]

Pitchfork
The liner notes are slim and strangely conceived (do I need to read that a song on this album is a “grand slam home run” even though I clearly have already purchased it?). […]
