The complete original album Money Jungle (United Artists UAS 15017), which was the only trio collaboration of Duke Ellington with Charles Mingus and Max Roach.

Both youngsters greatly admired Duke. Ellington himself briefly featured Roach in his band during the early 1950s, and expressed on multiple occasions his appreciation for Mingus’ compositions. Most of the repertoire here was especially composed for the date, while the only old tunes they recorded were “Warm Valley”, “Caravan”, and “Solitude”.


  • DUKE ELLINGTON – (piano)
  • CHARLES MINGUS – (bass)
  • MAX ROACH – (drums)

New York, September 17, 1962
