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. According to Mingus' liner notes, the title song is a ten-minute tone poem, depicting the rise of man from his hominid roots Pithecanthropus erectus to an eventual downfall due to his own failure to realize the inevitable emancipation of those he sought to.

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.
