AllMusic Review by

Outside of Money Jungle (with Duke Ellington and Max Roach), there really isn't that much available featuring Charles Mingus in a trio setting. The aptly titled Trios adds to that, with two different trio sets performing mostly standards: seven tracks with Hampton Hawes (piano) and Dannie Richmond (drums), and 11 tracks with Bud Powell (piano) and Roy Haynes (drums). If you want to check out Mingus in a small-group setting, this is one of few opportunities to do so. Good stuff.
