Harry ArnoldHarry Arnold + Big Band + Quincy Jones = Jazz! ... LP
Mercury, 1958. Very Good ... $6.99
Hard swinging big band material from Sweden – featuring the big band of Harry Arnold arranged by Quincy Jones. Quincy had been spending a lot of time in Sweden during the mid 50s – bringing with him a host of great players that would soon become big names on the European scene. Biggest of these is Benny Bailey, who plays some good solos here with a mostly-Swedish group that includes Arne Domnerus, Bengt Hallberb, Ake Persson, and Bengt-Arne Wallin. The style of the work, and its trans-Atlantic jazz orientation, is a direct precursor of later work by the Clarke-Boland Big Band – of whom Bailey was a big part. Titles all swing nicely, and tracks include "Doodlin", "Room 608", "Quincy's Home Again", "Brief Encounter", and "Meet Benny Bailey". LP, Vinyl record album
(Blue label pressing with deep groove.)

Double SixDouble Six Of Paris (aka Les Double Six Rencontrent Quincy Jones) ... LP
Capitol, 1960. Very Good ... $4.99
Rare US issue of this amazing album by the legendary French vocal group Les Double Six. The group included a core of the early Swingle Singers, and featured members Ward Swingle and Christine Legrand, two of France's best jazz vocalists at the time. On this LP, the group runs through a tightly swinging set of vocalese versions of Quincy Jones compositions and arrangements – including classics like "Doodlin", "Meet Benny Bailey", "French Rat Race", and "Boo's Bloos". The whole thing never stops swinging, and the harmony vocals are amazing! LP, Vinyl record album

New Quincy JonesBig Band Bossa Nova ... LP
Mercury, Mid 60s. Good+ ... $6.99
Perhaps THE greatest Quincy Jones album of the 60s – a hard-swinging batch of big band bossa tunes – and one of the greatest American takes on the bossa sound ever! Quincy really brings a lot of soul to the set – syncopating the bottom end of the tunes to really bring out the rhythms, and working with a jazzy flourish of horns that creates all these quick and clever little turns in the tunes! The sound's been heard most famously on the incredible track "Soul Bossa Nova" – an original by Quincy for the set, which has gone onto much greater fame through its use in the film Austin Powers, and a bazillion TV commercials! But the whole album's great too – and other tracks include "Serenata", "Lalo Bossa Nova", "Boogie Bossa Nova", and "Chega De Saudade". LP, Vinyl record album

Quincy JonesComplete Quincy Jones – My Journeys & Passions – Photos, Letters, Memories & More From Q's Personal Collection (hardcover) ... Book
Insight, 2008. New Copy Book ... $12.99 45.00
A very cool book – not just a biography on Quincy Jones, but one that's filled with photos, letters, and other things from his personal collection – plus some very cool "artifacts" as well! The volume's put together like a mini-museum of Q's life – and features pull-out treasures from different periods of his life – little surprises that are hidden in envelopes and jackets, to be discovered as you turn the page – making the reading of the book almost like an archeological dig into Jones' rich career! The artifacts are reproduced wonderfully – record covers, letters, and lots more – all in full color, in this oversized book that's every bit as visually enjoyable as an old Quincy Jones record! 140 pages, hardcover – but with lots more inside to expand the page count too.

One of Quincy Jones' best soundtracks of the 70s – filled with some great slick electric funky crime tracks, perfectly played by LA jazzers that include Clare Fischer, Paul Humphrey, Arthur Adams, David T Walker, Milt Holland, and Jerome Richardson. A few cuts feature vocals by Little Richard – but the best tracks are the instrumental ones – like the classic sample cut "Snow Creatures", which has an amazing intro and a very dark mood. Other tracks include "Passin The Buck", "Rubber Ducky", "Money Is", "Do It Do It", and "Money Runner". CD

Impulse, 1961. Used ... $5.99
A very soulful set of big band material from Quincy Jones – recorded during that tight early 60s period when his arrangements just couldn't fail! The album's his only session for Impulse, and it's got a slightly deeper style than his work from the time for Mercury – a bit more sophisticated, with nice modern touches that take the tunes in surprising directions. Part of the greatness of the set lies in the players – as the album features work by Curtis Fuller, Thad Jones, Stu Martin, Freddie Hubbard, Patty Brown, Phil Woods, and Jerome Richardson – and titles include "Robot Portrait", "Hard Sock Dance", "The Twitch", and "For Lena & Lennie".

The Dude at the height of his powers – serving up a smooth blend of soul and jazz that set the standard for an entire generation! As with some of his other 70s albums, Quincy's working here with a host of great talents that make the record sizzle – guests that include Hubert Laws, Herbie Hancock, Patti Austin, Luther Vandross, Gwen Guthrie, Eric Gale, and others – all of whom put their egos aside, and bring their best bits to the table working under Quincy's guidance! The album includes a great version of "Superwoman", plus the tracks "Tell Me A Bedtime Story", "Love Me By Name", and "Love, I Never Had it So Good". LP, Vinyl record album

Liberty, 1967. Near Mint- ... $2.99
A pretty sweet – and nearly forgotten – Quincy Jones soundtrack from the 60s – done for a film based on Carl Reiner's book and play of the same name, directed by Reiner himself! The film's set in the 30s, so there's a few period songs on the album that have an older jazz feel – including two with vocals by Reiner – but the film was produced in the 60s, and the best tracks have some really nice Quincy Jones jazzy touches – with some especially nice woodwind passages that dart around magically! Mel Carter sings 2 versions of the title cut "Enter Laughing", and other tracks include "David Dooze It", "Exit Crying", "Vienna Wails", and "I Hear You Calling". LP, Vinyl record album

Sonny StittSonny Stitt Plays Arrangements From the Pen Of Quincy Jones (Japanese paper sleeve edition) ... CD
Roost/Warner (Japan), 1955. New Copy ... Around September 17, 2014 (delayed)
Sonny Stitt plus the early genius of Quincy Jones – a really great combination that makes for a standout session on Roost! As you might guess with Quincy handling the arrangements, the gorup here is bigger than usual for Stitt – especially given that the bulk of his Roost sessions were small group ones – but that aspect makes for a really strong record here, one that has Sonny's alto soaring out over the top of some hiply swinging Jones' charts, already infused with the kind of soul that would burst forth more famously in the 60s. Titles include a few nice originals, like "Quince" and "Sonny's Bunny", but even on the standards – like "Stardust", "Lover", and "Love Walked In" – Stitt's in top form, and solos with creativity and imagination that show him at the top of his talents!

A&M, 1971. Very Good Gatefold ... Just Sold Out!
A great bit of 70s electric work from Quincy – and probably his funkiest album ever! Quincy's really stepping out here from the straighter and spacier styles of earlier records – going for more of the dirty grooves he was cutting up for soundtrack albums, and hitting notes that were a lot more fitting for the blacksploitation era. The record includes the massive funky track cut "Hikky-Burr", which was the theme to the first Bill Cosby Show, and which has a sinister groove, and some wild shouted lyrics! Also features two more great themes – "Ironside" and "The Anderson Tapes" – both of which have a cool electric sound to them, and the nice title cut, which actually features Quincy on vocals! Other tracks include "Cast Your Fate To The Wind", "What's Going On", "Brown Ballad" and more. LP, Vinyl record album

New Harry Arnold, Tony Scott, & Quincy JonesBig Band In Concert 1957 to 1958 ... CD
Dragon (Sweden), 1957/1958. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
One of the greatest pairings of American and Swedish players of the 50s happened under the guidance of bandleader Harry Arnold – the top Swedish jazz orchestra leader of the time, and an artist who also managed to get a few American releases at the time! The tracks on this set are pulled from 3 different live recordings in the years 1957 and 1958 – the last half of which are especially noteworthy, as they feature Arnold working with a young Quincy Jones, who'd also brought the great trumpeter Benny Bailey into the sessions. Other tracks on the set showcase the clarinet talents of Tony Scott – who also arranged a fair number of tunes – and who plays here alongside Swedish soloists that include Arne Domnerus, Bengt Hallberg, and Sixten Eriksson. Alice Babs sings on one track on the CD – and the package features 17 titles that include "Meet Benny Bailey", "Six-Ten", "Stand By", "The Moon Walks", "Frantic Blues", "Kinda Blues", "Have You Met Quincy Jones", and "Room 608".

A really great, oft-overlooked album from the best period of Quincy Jones! This album is quite possibly Quincy's most farthest-reaching – as he works in an array of styles that really shows his growing genius in the studio – not just jazz and soundtrack modes, but more soul-based ones, handled with work from a great array of guest stars who really expand the sound. There's loads of nice bits – like a version of "My Cherie Amour", done with vocals by Leon Ware and Minnie Riperton; a new take on "Bluesette", redone with Toots Thielemans; and the original "Beautiful Black Girl", which features rapping by The Watts Prophets!

Kool Moe Dee & Big Daddy Kane rap on a version of "Birdland" that also has solos from Miles, Diz, and James Moody; Take 6 sing on a mellow version of Ivan Lins' "Setembro (Brazilian Wedding Song)", Bobby McFerrin sings goofily on "Wee B Dooinit", Siedah Garrett and Al B Sure sing on "The Secret Garden", and a whole choir joins in on "Tomorrow".

A&M, 1973. Used ... Out Of Stock
Sweet funky Q for the 70s – easily one of the coolest albums ever from Quincy Jones! The album's got a very heavy electric vibe – one that's kind of a laidback take on the styles that Jones was forging in some of his 70s soundtrack work – served up with massive work on the keyboards from Dave Grusin and Bob James, the latter of whom brings some of his own CTI vibe strongly into play! The basslines are great too – often dipping, stepping, and turning wonderfully – keeping things laidback and mellow, but always making for some sort of a groove, even on the slower tracks too. There's just a bit of vocals on the record – handled by Valerie Simpson on two tracks, and Quincy on another – but the main focus here is on the instrumentation, which is completely sublime. Titles include Quincy's great remake of "Summer In The City", an oft-sought sample track – plus versions of "Superstition", "Daydreaming", and "You've Got It Bad Girl" – and the great originals "Chump Change", "Love Theme From The Getaway", "Eyes Of Love", and "Sanford & Son Theme".

Very early work from Cannonball Adderley – recorded way before the funky years, when he was a hard-wailing soulful soloist with a lot of bop in his style! Cannon's paired here with brother Nat, a good companion even at this early stage – and the two of them solo in front of a large group that features Jerome Richardson, Max Roach, Cecil Payne, and Jimmy Cleveland, all blowing away in hard heavy form, similar to that used on other Mercury/Emarcy jazz sessions from the time. Quincy Jones handled the arrangements, and Cannonball holds his own nicely – and serves up a whole new tone that's a lot more measured than in later years. Tracks include "Fallen Feathers", "Song Is You", "Willows", and "Everglade". CD

A big one for Patti Austin – and a set that moved her from the jazz/soul sidelines right into the mainstream – but all without losing any of her charm from before! A big part of the record's success comes from the production work of Quincy Jones – a longtime associate who gave Patti some key exposure on earlier records of his own, and a great choice to handle the mix of sophisticated soul and jazzy moments on this set. The record features some key tunes penned by Rod Temperton – and James Ingram duets with Patti on the crossover classic "Baby Come To Me" – nestled nicely alongside other cuts that include "The Way I Feel", "Do You Love Me", "The Genie", "Stop Look Listen", "The Island", and "Symphony Of Love".

George has come a long way from his roots with Jack McDuff here – but in a way that kind of has us impressed, as he's grooving away slickly on guitar, laying down some smooth vocals that we never would have imagined from his mid 60s recordings. Includes the massive hit "Give Me The Night", a cover of "Moody's Mood", and the tracks "Star Of A Story (X)", "Midnight Love Affair", "What's On Your Mind", and "Dinorah, Dinorah".

New Ray CharlesGenius + Soul = Jazz (plus bonus tracks) ... CD
Impulse/Sandstone, 1960. Used ... $5.99
A wonderful chapter in the career of Ray Charles – and a key album in helping raise his respect level a notch or two in the early 60s! We might argue with the mathematics in the title – or at least joke that Ray was using equations as titles years before Anthony Braxton – but you can't contest the fact that this one's a classic treat, and a legendary attempt to class up Ray's bluesy style for the masses. Quincy Jones and Ralph Burns handled the arrangements, and given that the record was issued by ABC a few years before they brought Ray into a country mode, it's interesting to think what might have happened had his career continued this way. There's only a small number of vocal tracks on the record, and most of the rest feature Ray at the organ, grooving away very nicely! Titles include "One Mint Julep", "Moanin", "I've Got News For You", "Mister C", and "Stompin Room Only". CD includes the three tracks "Albany Bound", "New York's My Home", and "Basin Street Blues" from the album, Genius Hits The Road. CD

Mercury/Ace (UK), 1964/1965. New Copy ... $9.99
Really tremendous work from Lesley Gore – and just the sort of record to show that she's way more than just another girl singer from the 60s! The sound here is incredibly groovy right from the start – a mix not just of the romping arrangements of Claus Ogerman (in his best Soul Searching mode), and the production of Quincy Jones – but also of Gore's great vocals, which have this surprising tinge of sexuality – and a depth that comes from the unique style of folding over her lead in the studio, to create a wide-flanged vocal approach! There's a sense of guts and lust here that goes past the usual weepy girl pop modes – a style that undeniably had an influence on other singers like Dusty Springfield or Cilla Black. Titles include "Hey Now", "You've Come Back", "Say Goodbye", "Live & Learn", "Movin Away", "It's Just About This Time", and "I Wish I Were A Boy".

An amazing little record – not only a fab 60s soundtrack, but a rare non-Blue Note 60s album by Herbie Hancock! The set was recorded for the film Blow Up – an incredibly dark thriller by Michaelangelo Antonioni, set in swinging London of the 60s, which provided a very groovy backdrop for Herbie's score! The tunes get plenty groovy on this set – dancing out with a combination of fast rhythms, nice piano and organ, and some of the jazzy flourishes you'd expect from a Quincy Jones soundtrack of similar vintage. The Yardbirds also make an appearance on the cut "Stroll On" – which features in one of the best scenes in the film – and other Herbie Hancock tracks include "The Thief", "Verushka", "The Naked Camera", "Bring Down The Birds", "The Kiss", and "The Bed".

New Michael JacksonDangerous (collector's edition – first pressing) ... CD
Epic, 1991. Used ... $19.99
One of those records that we remember dismissing at the time – but honestly, it really lives up to repeated listenings in later years! Sure, Michael Jackson's no longer working with Quincy Jones – and instead goes for Teddy Riley and some other (then) contemporary producers – but that all makes for a very solid 90s crossover vibe – perfect for radio play a the time, not to mention heavy video rotation too – and definitely still another jewel in the crown of the King of Pop! Titles include "Remember The Time", "Why You Wanna Trip On Me", "In The Closet", "Jam", "Dangerous", "Gone Too Soon", "Will You Be There", "Black Or White", "She Drives Me Wild", and "Can't Let Her Get Away".

New Michael JacksonOff The Wall ... LP
Epic, 1979. Very Good- Gatefold ... $11.99
Michael, if only you'd stayed at this level! This 1979 solo album by Michael is a killer batch of soul grooves – one of his best moments ever, and a crowning cap to a stellar 70s run – both as a younger solo act, and with the whole Jackson family! Quincy Jones produced, and the album's got a funky undercurrent that's really stunning – clubby, yet plenty darn soulful, with a wickedly sly groove that others would try to copy for years, but never fully match. Titles include seminal groovers like "Rock With You", "Don't Stop Til You Get Enough", "Working Day And Night", "Girlfriend", "Off The Wall", "Burn This Disco Out" and more. Amazing amazing amazing work from the to-be-coronated King Of Pop! LP, Vinyl record album

New Michael JacksonThriller (picture disc) ... LP
Epic, 1982. Very Good ... $11.99
Arguably the last true moment of genius in Michael Jackson's career – a record that sold a bazillion copies around the world – and for plenty good reason! Michael's still working here with Quincy Jones – in territory that steps nicely from the Off The Wall groove, into territory that's somewhat more poppy, but still quite soulful overall. And yes, the success of the album meant that cuts like "Billie Jean", "Thriller", and "Beat It" got plenty of play – thanks to both heavy radio and video rotation – but a few decades later, there's still a tremendous amount of depth here – on great cuts like "Human Nature", "Wanna Be Startin' Somethin", and "PYT" – which all hold up nicely! This seldom seen picture disc version has an image of Michael in a leather jacket in front of a purple backdrop on one side, and the image from the album art with Michael in a white suit in front on the other.

Philadelphia International, 1976. Very Good- Gatefold ... $3.99
Great stuff – and a key link between the early work of the Jackson 5 on Motown and Michael's later grooves with Quincy Jones! The Gamble/Huff team give the group a smooth sweet sound – definitely in a dancefloor mode, with some of the bassy riffs of Michael's Off The Wall album, but also with all the sweet catchy soul of earlier years – a really great blend that makes the album a great winner in the group's post-Motown years! The album includes the incredible smooth soul number "Show You The Way To Go", a killer cut that's very much in the Philly modern mode – and other tracks include "Style Of Life", "Enjoy Yourself", "Think Happy", "Blues Away", and "Living Together".

An overlooked bit of crossover funk from Chas Jankel – best known both as the musical force of Ian Dury & The Blockheads during the late 70s, and as the composer of "Ai No Corrida", which was covered more famously by Quincy Jones! This set's got a surprisingly great feel that's ripe for new discovery – a tightening up of the kinds of tunes that Jankel was doing with Dury (who still contributes lyrics but not vocals here), and a warmly gliding style that's halfway between the New York Ze Records mode of the time, and some of the growing wave of British imports. Titles include the great club track "Glad To Know You", plus "3,000,000 Synths", "Questionnaire", "109", "Now You're Dancing", "Boy", and "Magic Of Music". LP, Vinyl record album

Noel PointerPhantazia/Hold On ... CD
Blue Note/BGO (UK), 1977/1978. New Copy 2 CDs ... $7.99
A pair of great pair of records from electric fusion violinist Noel Pointer – Phantazia from '77 and Hold On from '78 – in a 2CD set! Like others of the 70s generation, Pointer plays the violin in a way that's clearly heavily influenced by keyboards of the time – electric in amplification, and worked in a mode that uses the instrument to create waves of sound that flow out amongst the tighter fusion rhythms of the set. Dave Grusin arranged and produced the Phantazia set – in his best lean soulful mode of the time – and other players include Earl Klugh, Ralph MacDonald, Steve Gadd, and Grusin himself. Titles include "Mirabella", "Night Song", "Living For The City", "Phantazia", and "Wafaring Stranger". Hold On was recorded in a smooth, soulful mode – and once again has Pointer working with Grusin! Noel's sweet work on electric violin is set up nicely with keyboards from Dave, guitar from Eric Gale, drums from Steve Gadd, and percussion from Ralph MacDonald. Noel sings a bit on the set, but even better are the vocals from Patti Austin, Gwen Guthrie, Yolanda McCullough, and others – who flesh out the backgrounds on some tunes. Titles include "Staying With You", "Movin In", "Superwoman", "Stardust Lady", "Hold On", and the extended "Roots Suite", based on Quincy Jones music for the show! CD

Frank Sinatra & Count BasieIt Might As Well Be Swing ... LP
Reprise, Early 60s. Near Mint- ... $7.99
One of Sinatra's greatest records ever – pure genius all the way through! Frank's backed here by the orchestra of Count Basie, with some incredible arrangements by Quincy Jones that really have a jazzy, syncopated kick to them. The move seems to be an unintentional way of covering for Frank's slightly failing pipes – but it also picks up on a seminal beat change in 60s pop, the same sort of gentle snapping groove that you'd find in the best work by Bacharach, a shift that really infuses Frank's vocals with a whole new sound, one that shows that he's ready to keep on growing and growing after being stuck in a Nelson Riddle rut. All tracks are superb – hip 60s pop and showtunes, like "I Believe In You", "Fly Me To the Moon", "More", "The Good Life", "Wives & Lovers", and "I Wanna Be Around". LP, Vinyl record album

Billy Taylor really gets a great setting for the music here – one that moves past the more familiar small group takes on the tunes, and features soaring large group backings arranged by a young Quincy Jones! Jones really knows how to keep things groovy, and free from cliche – allowing plenty of space for Taylor to step out in fluid solos in the frontline, but also featuring lots of great horn work from players that include Jimmy Cleveland on trombone, Don Elliott on Mellophone, Ernie Royal on trumpet, Gerry Mulligan on baritone sax, and Anthony Ortega on both alto and tenor! Titles include "Show Me", "Get Me To The Church On Time", "The Rain In Spain", "With A Little Bit Of Luck", and "On The Street Where You Live". LP, Vinyl record album

The American tenorist is working here in two different French groups – one a quintet with Henri Renaud on piano, the other a tentet with the core quartet of Renaud, plus some additional local horn players. Unlike some of Thompson's other albums from the time, which can frequently be dominated by standards, this set's got some great original material – mostly written by Renaud, and infused with a sharp modernist swing. Tiltes include "Souscription", "Marcel Le Fourreur", "G&B", "Tight Squeeze", "Meet Quincy Jones", and "Influence". Lucky's tone is rich and soulful – and the session's gone to the top of our list of his work! CD

Verve, 1963. Used ... $15.99
Two of Cal's great albums for Verve that mix jazzy vibes, Latin grooves, and kitschy "Eastern" scoring! Several Shades Of Jade is a killer batch of tracks that's right in line with Cal's best work from the 60's. It's got a monster version of Horace Silver's "Tokyo Blues", plus takes of Lalo Schifrin's "The Fakir", "Borneo", "Song of the Yellow River", and "Almond Tree". Schifrin conducts and plays piano, and the group also runs through a very tight version of Quincy Jones' "Hot Sake". Breeze From the East is a bit more mellow, but still great, and with a rolling warm sound that works great with Cal's vibes. The record includes a nice early version of "Leyete", one of Cal's greatest tracks, plus "Sake & Greens", "Cha", "Shoji", "China Nights", and "Theme From Burke's Law". Very sharp packaging, and 2 bonus cuts included, for a total of 22 cuts in all! CD

The set has both singers working together on some hip duets, then stepping apart and working on their own for some tracks too – an approach that's a bit like the Louis Armstrong/Ella Fitzgerald recordings over at Verve, but handled here with a bit more swing overall! Arrangements are by Quincy Jones, who knows how to make the record move nicely – and who also keeps things away from any too-hokey territory – and titles include "Around Midnight", "Bewitched", "That Old Feeling", "Goin Around", "Lover", and "Gone Again".

Verve (Germany), 1960s. New Copy ... $6.99
A mighty tribute to one of the greatest soundtrack composers of the 50s and 60s – served up in a host of jazz and vocal gems from the equally mighty Universal catalog! Most of the numbers here are from the 60s, and showcase Mancini at his jazziest – the period from Peter Gunn onward, when it seemed like every tune Hank touched turned to gold – and became a great jumping-off point for expression in a wide variety of musical styles. The 18 track package features some gems we've never seen reissued before, plus more familiar tunes that sound even better in this ultra-hip setting – and together, the tracks are a tremendous testament to the genius of Mancini at a time when he was working at his fullest potential. Titles include "Sally's Tomato" by Cal Tjader, "Wait Until Dark" by Walter Wanderley & Margie Dotson, "Peter Gunn" by Art Healie & The Electric Saxophone, "Days Of Wine & Roses" by Dizzy Gillespie, "A Shot In The Dark" by Shirley Scott, "Nothing To Lose" by Claudine Longet, "Moon River" by Billy Eckstine, "Shadows Of Paris" by Elsie Bianchi, "Baby Elephant Walk" by Bert Kaempfert, "Experiment In Terror" by Kai Winding, "Charade" by Johnny Hartman, "Slow Hot Wind" by Sarah Vaughan, "Bird Brain" by Quincy Jones, and "Two For The Road" by Gunter Kallmann Choir.

We'll be honest, though, in saying that we really think it's the great jazzy backing and the tight arrangements by Quincy that make this record so great. The Brothers' bass and vocal work is fine – but it's the non-bass instrumental moments that really make this album great, as you'll hear on cuts like the moog-heavy "Tomorrow", or the timbales/keyboard/flute groover "Thunder Thumbs & Lightnin Licks". Great stuff if you dig mid 70s work by Q – and featuring the tracks "I'll Be Good To You", "Land Of Ladies", "Free & Single", "Get The Funk Out Ma Face", and "The Devil". LP, Vinyl record album

The album's got a warm, smooth groove that's totally great – one that builds tremendously from the sophisticated soul advances on the Chicago scene of the 70s – and which features bits of jazz, soul, and even Brazilian influences gliding wonderfully through the mix! There's a sense of pride, power, and confidence here that graces every single number – and in a way, the album's almost like a Quincy Jones effort from the same stretch – with Evans' showcasing a new side of his talents, and his collaborators, on every different number. Linda Williams sings vocals on the groovy "Capricorn Rising", Eddie Harris plays on "Do Re Me For Soul", Billy Durham sings on "Windy City", Tower Of Power guest on "Educated Funk", and the group offers up a remake of Evans' Soulful Strings classic "Burning Spear".

Atlantic, 1973. Used Gatefold ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
One of Aretha Franklin's greatest records – and a complicated batch of jazzy tunes that features arrangements and production by Quincy Jones! The record breaks way past the stock southern soul style of some of Aretha's earlier work for Atlantic – and it features a more sophisticated style that hits a number of different moods, and which shows off Aretha's strong commitment to growth as an artist. Features a semi-hit reading of King Pleasure's old classic, "Moody's Mood For Love", plus "Sister From Texas", "Somewhere", "Angel", and "That's The Way I Feel About Cha". LP, Vinyl record album

New Dizzy GillespieDizzy Gillespie At Newport (plus bonus tracks) ... CD
Verve, 1957. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
One of the best albums ever in Verve's classic set of recordings from the 1957 Newport Jazz Festival – a set that captures the Dizzy Gillespie group of the decade in top live formation! The ensemble here is plenty hip – with a young Lee Morgan joining Dizzy on trumpet, and a host of other great players who include Melba Liston and Al Grey on trombones, Benny Golson and Billy Mitchell on saxes, and rhythm from the trio of Wynton Kelly on piano, Paul West on bass, and Charlie Persip on drums! Although big, the band often had the sharper groove of a small combo – and even when hitting some older moments from Gillespie's earlier years, they still kept a modern edge in their approach – thanks to arrangements by AK Salim, Tadd Dameron, Benny Golson, Quincy Jones, and Dizzy himself. Titles include "School Days", "I Remember Clifford", "Manteca", "Dizzy's Blues", "Cool Breeze", and "Doodlin". CD also features a full bonus side from another album – Dizzy Gillespie with Mary Lou Williams At Newport – featuring Mary Lou Williams with the same group, on titles that include the extended "Zodiac Suite", plus "Carioca" and "Night In Tunisia".

New Neal HeftiSex & The Single Girl ... LP
Warner, Early 60s. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A pretty darn groovy soundtrack – one of Neal Hefti's best of the 60s, and the score to a silly sex comedy that starred Natalie Wood and Tony Curtis! Fran Jeffries sings vocals on a few cuts – like "Sex & The Single Girl" and "Anniversary Song" – but the best tunes are the instrumentals, which mix together a lot of electric harpsichord (ala Odd Couple), a bit of flute, and which have a style that's in the mode of the best Quincy Jones or Henry Mancini scoring from the time! Titles include "Legs", "The Game", "Midnight Swim", "City Style", "I Must Know", and "I've Got Love". LP, Vinyl record album

New Michael JacksonBad ... LP
Epic, 1987. Used Gatefold ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
The third great album in the trilogy that includes Off The Wall and Thriller – and a set that still has Michael Jackson running strong at the height of his solo powers! Quincy Jones is still at the helm, and Michael more than proves that he can still come up with a pop tune without going too far over the top – catchy, compelling numbers that played well all over the world of pop – but which still hang onto just a little part of his soul roots too! That balance is a key factor to the success of this set – a record that helped re-ignite interest in Jackson's music, and introduce him to a whole new generation – while still keeping most of the older fans plenty pleased too. Titles include "Just Good Friends", "Smooth Criminal", "Bad", "Another Part Of Me", "Man In The Mirror", and "Speed Demon". LP, Vinyl record album

New Michael JacksonThriller ... LP
Epic, 1982. Used Gatefold ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Arguably the last true moment of genius in Michael Jackson's career – a record that sold a bazillion copies around the world – and for plenty good reason! Michael's still working here with Quincy Jones – in territory that steps nicely from the Off The Wall groove, into territory that's somewhat more poppy, but still quite soulful overall. And yes, the success of the album meant that cuts like "Billie Jean", "Thriller", and "Beat It" got plenty of play – thanks to both heavy radio and video rotation – but a few decades later, there's still a tremendous amount of depth here – on great cuts like "Human Nature", "Wanna Be Startin' Somethin", and "PYT" – which all hold up nicely!

New Gene KrupaDrummer Man ... LP

Kind of a reprise of earlier days – one that reunites Krupa with Anita O'Day and Roy Eldridge, as the group runs through some material from earlier years. Arrangements are by Quincy Jones, Billy Byers, and Nat Pierce – and the set actually swings more cleanly than some of Krupa's material from the 40s. Titles include "Drummin Man", "Drum Boogie", "Slow Down", "Wire Brush Stomp", "That's What You Think", "Rockin Chair", and "Opus 1". LP, Vinyl record album

New Moon People/Los AstronautasLand Of Love ... LP
Speed, Late 60s. New Copy (reissue)... Temporarily Out Of Stock
One of the grooviest records ever recorded – and pretty darn rare, too! The Moon People – aka Los Astronautas – were a Latin Soul studio band who played behind some of the other killer recordings on the Speed Label. They're best known for their sock-boogaloo instrumental "Land Of Love" – a stone jammer which kicks off the album – and their forte is blending together Latin rhythms, soul instrumentation, and kind of a mod 60s easy production style, handled here by maestro Morty Craft. The album's got a really really weird feel – part Latin Soul, part 60s soundtrack – almost as if Joe Cuba and Quincy Jones were hanging out together! Titles include "Land Of Love", "Morty's Harem", "Indian Soul", "Happy Soul", "Revolt", and "Last Train To Clarksville". LP, Vinyl record album

New Billy PrestonI Wrote A Simple Song ... LP
A&M, 1971. Used Gatefold ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Billy Preston's first album on A&M Records – a surprisingly great home for his ever-evolving style! Billy give some big thanks in the notes to George Harrison, Bobby Womack, and Quincy Jones – all of whom he credits for bringing the album into being – although it's Quincy who really seems to do the most, given that he handled the string and horn arrangements for the set! Jones' touch is very apparent in the overall sound, as Preston's got a new sense of tightness for the record – a focus to his previous range of styles that really hits home hard, and which sets the tone for big successes to come. Titles include the nice funk instrumental "Outta Space", plus "I Wrote A Simple Song", "John Henry", "The Bus", "The Looner Tune", "You Done Got Older", and "Should've Known Better".

New Rufus & ChakaMasterjam ... CD
MCA, 1979. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A definite masterjam from Chaka Khan and Rufus – one of the group's last key efforts together – produced to perfection by the mighty Quincy Jones! Chaka's vocals are sublime right from the start – taking on the soaring majesty she'd use on her initial solo recordings – and the group's tighter than ever – really hitting the right mix of jazzy funk and soul to make the whole thing come together perfectly. Greatness like this only gets better with years – and this sweet little album is more than proof of that fact! Tracks include a version of "Body Heat", plus "Heaven Bound", "Live In Me", "Any Love", "Do You Love What You Feel", and "What Am I Missing". CD

A&M, 1960s/1970s/1980s/1990s. Used 3CDs ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A heady look at a legendary label – the mighty A&M Records, a company who forever changed the face of pop music in the 60s and 70s! The package really spans the full scope of the A&M contribution to modern music – from 60s bossa and instrumental sides, to later rock/folk gems from that decade, through groundbreaking 70s rock, mature pop, influential soul, and more – all packaged in a really handsome set! One CD features From AM To FM – documenting the key shifts in the label's sound – with cuts that include "You Were On My Mind" by We Five, "Mas Que Nada" by Sergio Mendes & Brasil 66, "Wild World" by Cat Stevens, "Rise" by Herb Alpert, "I Just Wanna Stop" by Gino Vanelli, "Close To You" by The Carpenters, "The More I See You" by Chris Montez, and "Love Will Keep Us Together" by Captain & Tennille.

New VariousBossa Nova Happiness ... CD
Universal (Japan), 1960s. New Copy 2CD ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Plenty to be happy about here – a sweet set of classic bossa tracks from the 60s, and one of the first to equally mix gems from the vaults of both Universal and EMI Records! The recent merger of the musical giants means that Blue Note tracks sit next to Verve numbers from the US, and older Brazilian recordings on labels like Odeon or Elenco – more than enough music to make a mighty great selection of music! The set also features a few numbers of more recent vintage – and titles include "The Dolphin" by Bill Evans, "Latona" by Big John Patton, "Sambou Sambou" by Doris Monteiro, "Monsieur Binot" by Joyce, "Soul Bossa Nova" by Quincy Jones, "Chup Chup I Got Away" by Marcos Valle, "We & The Sea" by Tamba 4, "Dindi" by Sylvia Telles, "Summer Samba" by Walter Wanderley, "Upa Nequinho" by Duke Pearson, "Wave" by Ron Carter, and "Inutil Paisagem" by Milton Banana Trio.

Motown, 1973. Used 2LP Gatefold ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
This one was kind of Motown's answer to the Wattstax albums – a double live set, recorded in Chicago during the Push Expo, headed by Jesse Jackson. The tracks here are more of a mixed bag than some of those on the deeper soul Wattstax albums, but there are some nice moments overall, buried in the large mix of music and artists – many of whom didn't normally record for Motown. The tunes are familiar, but they're presented here in some nicely different live takes. Titles include "Lean On Me" by Bill Withers, "Country Preacher" by Cannonball Adderley, "This Child Of Mine" by Zulema, "Everybody Plays The Fool" by Main Ingredient, "Give Me Your Love" by Curtis Mayfield, "I've Gotta Be Me" by Sammy Davis Jr, "I Wanna Be Where You Are" by The Jackson 5, "What's Going On" by Marvin Gaye, "Close To You" by Jerry Butler & Brenda Lee Eager, "On A Clear Day/Killer Joe" by Roberta Flack & Quincy Jones, and "Sunshine" by The O'Jays.

Moody's on alto and tenor – no flute yet at this point – and highlights include "Workshop", a great number with vocals by Eddie Jefferson, one of his best vocalese tracks from the early years, and never issued on any of his own LPs. Other tracks include "Blues In The Closet", "Keepin Up With Jonesy", "I'm Gone", "Mambo With Moody", and "Nobody Knows". LP, Vinyl record album

Sarah Vaughan gets some great backings here from Quincy Jones – who brings a nice sort of punch to the record, and makes it one of her grooviest from the early 60s! The style's still somewhat traditional – not as much in moddish Jones modes from a few years later – but there's already that strong sense of syncopation that really sets Quincy's charts apart, the same sort of rhythms he brought to his Reprise arrangements for Frank Sinatra and Count Basie, although not as Basie-bombastic overall. Vaughan's vocals are still beautifully smooth in the setting, and titles include "I Could Write A Book", "Maria", "Baubles Bangles & Beads", "So Long", "You're Mine You", "Moonglow", and "Invitation".

Atlantic/Rhino, Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy 4CDs ... Out Of Stock
A legendary legacy of soul – served up by a singer who definitely earns the title of "Queen" stated on the cover! The music here comes from a period that just about everyone deems as Aretha Franklin's best – her seminal years at Atlantic Records, where she made an important early shift to deeper soul modes for the second half of the sixties, then really took off into some headier territory in the next generation too! The 4CD package features 85 tracks in all – all served up in one mighty sweet set – and the range of cuts starts with Franklin's initial classics with producers Jerry Wexler, Arif Mardin, and Tom Dowd, then moves up to important work with Quincy Jones and Curtis Mayfield too. Every cut's a gem – and titles include "Sparkle", "Something He Can Feel", "Spirit In The Dark", "You & Me", "Try Matty's", "Young Gifted & Black", "Rock Steady", "Lean On Me", "A Brand New Me", "My Song", "I Take What I Want", "You Send Me", "I Say A Little Prayer", "Ain't No Way", "Respect", "Drown In My Own Tears", "Good Times", "I Wonder", "A Natural Woman", "Chain Of Foools", "Day Draming", and lots lots more!

Jazzclub (Germany), 1960s/1970s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A very hip collection of older funky cuts – ones that have been sampled in recent years by hip hoppers, but which stand up plenty darn great on their own! Most tracks here should be quite familiar from recent uses of their key elements, but they sparkle even more brightly here in their original versions – as really stand out soul, jazz, and soundtrack tunes from the 60s and 70s! The package features full notes on all tracks, and also lists a key sampling of each number – and as usual for Jazzclub, you get plenty of greatness here for a very low price.
