Pithecanthropus Erectus is a 1956 album by jazz composer and bassist Charles Mingus. Mingus noted that this was the first album where he taught arrangements to his musicians by ear in lieu of putting the chords and arrangements in writing

Pithecanthropus Erectus was Charles Mingus' breakthrough as a leader, the album where he established himself as a composer of boundless imagination and a fresh new voice that, despite his ambitiously modern concepts, was firmly grounded in jazz tradition. Mingus truly discovered himself after mastering the vocabularies of bop and swing, and with Pithecanthropus Erectus he began seeking new ways to increase the evocative power of the art form and challenge his musicians (who here include altoist Jackie McLean and pianist Mal Waldron) to work outside of convention.

1956's Pithecanthropus Erectus is the Charles Mingus record where he really begins to take hold of his own personal vision of how jazz music could look. After cutting his teeth on the . scene and touring with Louis Armstrong and Lionel Hampton, Mingus moved to New York, began Debut Records with Max Roach, and entered into the most productive and creative decade of his career. At the Bohemia" was the beacon for Mingus' style, and "Pithecanthropus Erectus" is really the blue print for much of his later work, it's his first album where he taught the musicians the pieces by ear, and he pushes boundaries without compromising on connection to the listener, mood and swing.

There's a cold wind blowing Downtown tonight Oh, I'm all done Walking around, I don't feel right I'm so used to feeling warm Having you hanging on my arm I can't believe you just cut me loose You're gonna look good in blues They still got a cool band In the little club where we used.

Pithecanthropus Erectus" is in the opinion of many (and rightly so), the first Charles Mingus masterpiece. In all, a great album of Mingus' music. I'd start with "Mingus Ah Um", but this may be where to look next.
