Rising to the challenge of the controversial music of Ornette Coleman in the '60s, Charles Mingus formed a quartet with Dannie Richmond, Ted Curson, and Eric Dolphy. "Charles Mingus Presents Charles Mingus" its the quartet's only album and is often considered one of Mingus' best.
Mingus' formal education with H. Rheinshagen (bassist of the New York Philharmonic), and the legendary Lloyd Reese, along with listening to jazz-greats, and even touring in his early adulthood with masters such as Louis Armstrong and Lionel Hampton, led him to become one of the most important American music icons in the twentieth century.
