Although Mingus' small-group recordings are the ones most often cited as his premier works, this album does, in fact, rank at the top of his oeuvre and compares favorably with the finest large-ensemble jazz recordings by anyone, including Ellington. The pieces had been brewing over the years, one from as far back as 1939, and had been given more or less threadbare performances on occasion, but this was his first chance to record them with a sizable, well-rehearsed orchestra.

In the original liner notes, Mingus described it as "the best album I have ever made". Mingus was nominated for the 1973 Grammy Award for Best Album Notes (Non-Classical) for the album, losing to Tom T. Hall for Tom T. Hall's Greatest Hits.
The sessions for Let My Children remain blurred as far as detail goes, but it's clear that James Moody and Bobby Jones do spectacular jobs soloing amid a dense crowd of ensemble movements and passages. And the version of "The Shoes of the Fisherman's Wife" is so heartfelt and moving that you almost miss the monumental complexity of the piece. It was brand new-not just the album but the music! It is still as fresh today as in 1969. Included in the album were notes, an essay really, written by Charles Mingus. As deep as the music. Sadly Columbia/Sony did not include the complete notes, only excerpts.
