Blues & Roots is an album by Charles Mingus, recorded in 1959 and released in 1960. It has been reissued on CD, by Atlantic Records and Rhino. Mingus explained the birth of this record in the album's liner notes: This record is unusual-it presents only one part of my musical world, the blues. A year ago, Nesuhi Ertegün suggested that I record an entire blues album in the style of Haitian Fight Song in Atlantic LP 1260, because some people, particularly critics, were saying I didn't swing enough.

This album is similar in feeling to the great Mingus Ah Um. Overall, it highlights Mingus' bluesgospel influences. Wednesday Night Prayer Meeting, 5:39 for example, in the tradition of songs like Better Git It Into Your SoulMingus Ah Um and Slop Mingus Dynasty. Unfortunately, this driving piece is flawed by the otherwise-excellent Horace Parlan's repetitive piano-for a few seconds it seemed like the CD was stuck. 0 out of 5 stars Charles 'Charlie' Mingus Blues & Roots.
