Quincy JonesBirth Of A Band ... LP LP format
Mercury, Late 50s. Near Mint- ... $19.99
A very swingin, very groovy early album from Quincy – one that's clearly in the big band mode, but handled with soulful touches that really set it apart from the genre! The band is a great one all the way through – and the album features solos by Zoot Sims, Jerome Richardson, Phil Woods, Clark Terry, and Harry Edison. Tracks are very often in a soul jazz mode – arranged by Quincy and Melba Liston – and featuring versions of some of the best jazz compositions of the time. Titles include "Moanin", "I Remember Clifford", "Along Came Betty", and "Whisper Not". LP, Vinyl record album

Quincy JonesGreat Wide World Of Quincy Jones ... CD CD format
Lonehill, 1959. Used ... $6.99
Quincy's world is great and wide indeed – and even at this early point in his career, he was displaying a wonderful talent for bringing in bits from all sources! The album's essentially a straight jazz set, but it's got some great exotic touches that are in keeping with the "world" theme and the globe-trotting titles on the set. The group's excellent too – with players that include Sahib Shihab, Budd Johnson, Les Spann, Lee Morgan, and Phil Woods – all working through hip arrangements by Al Cohn, Bill Potts, and Ernie Wilkins. Titles include "Ghana", "Air Mail Special", "Chant Of The Weed", "Eesom", and "I Never Has Seen Snow". CD

Quincy JonesQ – Soul Bossa Nostra ... CD CD format
Interscope, 2010. Used ... $3.99
A victory lap for the great Quincy Jones – revisiting a bunch of his self penned classic tracks, some choice covers and new material featuring a who's who of indebted contemporary singers & rappers – including Talib Kweli, Mary J Blige, Amy Winehouse, Three 6 Mafia, Usher, John Legend and more. It's the opposite of a rehash – Q's classic grooves are reinvented with a contemporary feel with fresh rhymes and vocals on the best material, including a bold version of "Hikky Burr" (in which Three 6 Mafia & David Banner cast it as a post-Katrina anthem), plus "Ironside" with Talib Kweli, a cover of "Strawberry Letter 23" feat Akon, "Tomorrow" feat John Legend, "Get The Funk Outta My Face" feat Snoop Dogg, "Betcha Wouldn't Hurt Me" with Mary J Blige, Q-Tip & Alfredo Rodriguez, "Everything Must Change" with Bebe Winans, "Sanford & Son" feat TI, BOB, Prince Charlez & Mohombi and more.

Quincy JonesQuincy Jones Plays Hip Hits ... LP LP format
Mercury, 1963. Very Good+ ... $6.99
One of Quincy Jones' best for Mercury Records in the 60s – a very groovy record that was done with a feel that's somewhere in between his Big Band Bossa album and his best 60s soundtrack work! The format is simple – Quincy picks a sweet batch of jazz semi-hits from the early 60s, plays them with a nice mix of soul jazz arrangements, and works with a great ensemble filled with wonderful players – including Roland Kirk, Budd Johnson, Seldon Powell, James Moody, and Jerome Richardson on reeds; Lalo Schifrin and Patti Brown on piano, Jim Hall on guitar, Clark Terry on trumpet, and Melba Liston on trombone – plus lots of great percussion at the bottom, helping bring some Latin energy to the grooves at points. Tunes are familiar, but all given a great Quincy Jones twist – and titles include "Gravy Waltz", "Jive Samba", "Walk On The Wild Side", "Bossa Nova USA", and "Watermelon Man". LP, Vinyl record album

Verve, 1960s. Used ... $6.99
The genius of Quincy Jones' work from the 60s was boldly brought back to light in the first few minutes of Austin Powers – as his remarkable tune "Soul Bossa Nova" played while Mike Myers and crew grooved it up on Carnaby Street. Verve's finally gotten a clue, and unleashed some of Quincy's other excellent recordings from the time – a tasty batch of 16 cuts that includes "Soul Bossa Nova", plus other groovers with a similar feel. Titles include "Funny Farm", "The In Crowd", "Rack Em Up", "Something About You", "Mohair Sam", "What's New Pussycat", and "Hard Day's Night". CD

Quincy JonesThey Call Me Mister Tibbs ... LP LP format
United Artists, Late 60s. Very Good ... $39.99
An excellent Quincy Jones score that stands head and shoulders above the soundtrack to the first film in this series, In The Heat Of The Night. Q is in fine fine form with this material – adding in a lot more funk than before, to fit the uptown theme of the film. There's lots of nice jazzy tracks on the record, and some tight funky ones that made the soundtrack virtually a blueprint for the blacksploitation sound of the 70s! Titles include "Soul Flower", "Call Me Mr. Tibbs", "Black Cherry", "Blues For Mr. Tibbs", and "Fat Poppadaddy". LP, Vinyl record album

One of the greatest Quincy Jones albums of all time! The record's a spacey jazz masterpiece – and it combine's Quincy's soulful soundtrack vision with the excellent production talents of Creed Taylor, for a monster album of long drawn out cuts that mix soul jazz with more sophisticated arrangements! Bob James plays electric piano on a number of cuts, and in a way, the record's kind of a blueprint for some of James' later CTI albums. Titles include "Killer Joe", "Dead End", "Walking In Space", and "Love & Peace". LP, Vinyl record album

Quincy Jones tells all his secrets of the studio – working here in a really cool volume that details his production efforts on decades' worth of records – with a strong focus on some of the most special albums in his history, plus lots more details on the general production process too! Jones speaks not just on his own efforts, but all the many things that go into making a great album – from the musicians and singers, to the folks behind the studio wall too!

Sonny StittSonny Stitt Plays Arrangements From the Pen Of Quincy Jones ... LP LP format
Roost, 1955. Very Good ... $29.99
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!

Quincy JonesGolden Boy ... LP LP format
Mercury, 1964. Very Good ... Just Sold Out!
A sweet bridge between Quincy's big band recordings and his groovier soundtrack work of the mid 60s – as the record combines straight jazzy grooving with some of the cooler elements of Quincy's soundtrack scores, like stepping strings, wordless voices, and a breathy mellow groove that floats across the disc in a wonderful way! Aiding Quincy in the album are a host of top-line jazz players – including Eddie Lockjaw Davis, Jerome Richardson, and Phil Woods on saxes – plus Freddie Hubbard on trumpet, Al Grey on trombone, and Jim Hall on guitar! Although titled after the show Golden Boy, only a few cuts here are from that musical – and the rest include Quincy Jones originals and some cool covers, given the Q twist. Titles include "Seaweed", "The Witching Hour", "Hard Day's Night", "The Sidewinder", and "Theme From Golden Boy", done in 2 versions, both great! LP, Vinyl record album

Universal (Japan), Mid 50s. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Excellent work by both of the players listed as leaders – and the beginning of a huge tradition of American jazzmen in Europe that would culminate in the glory days of the Clarke-Boland Big Band scene! The record features sessions cut by Haynes in Stockholm, with Sahib Shihab on baritone and alto, Ake Persson on trombone, and Bjarne Nerem on tenor – plus sessions cut by Jones earlier in the same city, with Persson on trombone, Arne Domnerus on alto, Lars Gullin on baritone, and Art Farmer on trumpet. The tracks have a tightly arranged, but still swinging style – similar to the best hardbop work on Emarcy from the 50s – and the European soloists more than keep up with their US counterparts! Titles include "Hagnes", "Pogo Stick", "Little Leona", and "Jones' Bones". CD

New Quincy JonesBig Band Bossa Nova ... CD CD format
Mercury/Verve, 1962. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
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". CD

One of the wildest Quincy Jones soundtracks ever! The record is a strange melange of jazzy tracks, groovy tracks, and some that have a strange messed-up feel. The film was a Michael Caine "heist" film, and the music's got the kind of sound you'd expect. Titles include "It's Caper Time", "Greensleeves & All That Jazz", "Getta Bloomin' Move On", "Somethings Cookin" – plus the hit track "On Days Like These", in a vocal version by Matt Monro, and an instrumental by Peter King. The whole thing's incredibly groovy – and it's a treat to have out on CD with legit production! CD

Qwest/Mosaic, 1984. Used ... $19.99
Classy soul from Patti Austin – working here with some great help from Quincy Jones, Narada Michael Walden, and others – all of whom help her find just the right space to groove nicely! Patti's one of those soul singers who always sparkles best in a smoother setting – and the polished mid 80s style of this one helps her hit a new level of maturity – one that shines out strongly, even amidst some of the more electric backings – with enough jazzy inflections to remind us of Patti's roots, and her long association with Quincy Jones over the years. Titles include "It's Gonna Be Special", "Shoot The Moon", "Rhythm Of The Street", "Fine Fine Fella", "Starstruck", "Any Way You Can", and "Change Your Attitude". CD

Yipes! This one made everyone a bucket of money – especially Quincy Jones, whose new Qwest imprint the record was one of the first to grace. 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". The sound of a million supermarkets and elevators during the 80s! LP, Vinyl record album

Blam is right – an all-out batch of funky tracks from The Brothers Johnson – captured here right in the middle of their classic period with Quincy Jones! The Q's at the helm on production for the set, and the record's a great extension of their earlier efforts with the man – but a bit more Johnson-tuned (if we can say that in mixed company) – with the bass upfront on some of the best numbers, and a surprisingly strong male ballad approach on some of the gentler tunes. There's a slightly jazzy undercurrent at times, and tracks include "Rocket Countdown/Blastoff", "Ride-O-Rocket", "Streetwave", "Blam", "So You Won't Stay", "Ain't We Funkin Now", and "Mista Cool".

The Brothers Johnson are hardly out of control on this mid 80s set – as the album's got a tight groove that shows the duo are still going strong long past their 70s fame! As before, there's a bit of bounce on the bottom – that bassy groove that the pair first crafted back in their Quincy Jones days, topped with some sweet keyboards too – and punched up a bit on the rhythms, in styles that are in keeping with the changes in soul at the time. There's a nice degree of warmth on some of the best numbers here – and titles include "Lovers Forever", "Do You", "Let's Try Love Again", "Out Of Control", "Save Me", "Tokyo", and "It's All Over Now".

Nice funky 70s instrumentals, composed by Alan Tew, and performed by the group Bullet – a hip electric combo with a tight sound library feel. The overall style reminds us of Lalo Schifrin or Quincy Jones cop show work from the early 70s – with some tasty keyboards, plenty of riffing, and tight fast rhythmic tunes.

Atlantic/Rhino, Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy 4CDs ... $31.99 44.98
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!

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". CD features 13 more bonus tracks too – including "That's The Boy", "After He Takes Me Home", "Consolation Prize", "A Girl In Love", "What Am I Gonna Do With You", and "You Didn't Look Round". CD

Warner/Wounded Bird, 1974. New Copy ... $10.99 11.98
Seminal sides from Herbie Hancock – amazing material recorded for Warner Brothers in the years between his time at Blue Note and his big fame at Columbia Records – all sides that definitely show Hancock as one mighty righteous cat! Herbie's really stretching past his more conventional jazz of earlier years here – working both with a bit more electricity in his keys, and some larger arrangements that have a wonderful sense of flow and funk – a groove that definitely puts Hancock on a par with Quincy Jones at his funky best during the early 70s! The album's filled with great grooves pulled from the Warner Brothers albums by Hancock – including some quite long numbers – titles that include the funky nuggets "Wiggle Waggle", "Lil Brother", and "Tell Me A Bedtime Story" – plus "Sleeping Giant", "Crossings", "Quazar", "Ostinato", and "You'll Know When You Get There".

Groovy Lena Horne from the 60s – an album that's a heck of a lot hipper and more swinging than most of her sets from a decade before! That unmistakable Horne style of singing is still very much in place here – but the backings are often tightly punctuated, with a gently soulful groove that definitely lives up to the title, and which serves up most of the tracks with a nice little sense of rhythm. Ray Ellis is working here with Lena on the backings – and his style is arguably a bit groovier than usual too, with more of the syncopations you might find in mid 60s Quincy Jones or Oliver Nelson. Titles include "I Got A Worried Man", "What The World Needs Now Is Love", "Love Bug", "Taste Of Honey", "I'd Like To Hear It Sometime", and "You Know What To Do". CD

Epic, 1987. Used 3CD & DVD ... $19.99
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". Second CD is filled with great bonus material – a huge amount of tracks that include "Free", "Song Groove", "I'm So Blue", "Don't Be Messin Round", "Streetwalker", "Fly Away", "Price Of Fame", "Toto Mi Amor Eres Tu", "Je Ne Vieux Pas La Fin De Nous", "Bad (Afrojack rmx)", "Speed Demon (Nero rmx)", and "Bad Afrojack club)".

A great one from Michael Jackson – easy to miss between the pillars of his earlier work with his brothers, and his later stuff with Quincy Jones, but equally great for that reason! The album's got Michael singing in a smooth soul mode that's really nice – almost like Smokey Robinson's Quiet Storm period in its sophistication, but with more of a groove on most tracks. The record sports some great arrangements by James Carmichael that really take Michael into adulthood – and the tracks include "We're Almost There", "Take Me Back", "Cinderella Stay Awhile", "We've Got Forever", "Just A Little Bit Of You", "You Are There", and "I'll Come Home To You".

The style's a bit clubby, but also has some wider depth too – maybe an undercurrent of fusion that comes from players like Lee Ritenour and David T Walker on guitar, Joe Sample and Sonny Burke on keyboards, and Oscar Brasher on trumpet – who find a way to work wonderfully alongside the albums vocals from singers Merry Clayton, Edna Wright, and Jim Gilstrap – all with a style that's not unlike some of the best Quincy Jones material of the time! As with Quincy, there's a sense of care and confidence that really holds the album together – on titles that include "Higher My Love", "Organ Grinder", "Into My Thing", "Wild Cherry", "Fantasy Woman", "Straw In the Wind", and "Together Whatever".

A sweet set of fusiony soul from Lalo Schifrin – a great little record that's almost better than most of his other late 70s efforts, including some of his soundtrack work! The album's in the same territory that Quincy Jones was hitting at the time – at its core, a set of funky electric jazz – but done with an expansive approach that also brings in soulful vocals on most tracks, really hitting some nice R&B-styled fusion grooves! Sylvia Smith is the lead singer on most of the vocal tunes, and other players include west coast soul jazzers like Ndugu Chancler, Oscar Brashear, Paul Jackson, Ronnie Foster, and Patrice Rushen – a great lineup that really keeps things tight, and with a vibe that's different than Schfrin at CTI.

Cal TjaderSeveral Shades Of Jade ... LP LP format
Verve, 1963. Very Good+ Gatefold ... $13.99
Unlike the mellower Breeze from the East LP (another Tjader "eastern" session), this one's got some very lively Latiny stuff – despite the orientalist theme of the LP. There's 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". In a cool Verve gatefold, with Japanese-y jade statues on the front. LP, Vinyl record album
(Original pressing. Cover has a couple names in marker.)

Dinah WashingtonEvil Gal – The Imperious Dinah Washington ... CD CD format
El (UK), 1950s. Used ... $5.99
Wonderful work from Dinah Washington – most of it cut in New York and Chicago in the early-to-mid 50s – peak stuff that splits a fairly even difference between her rollicking rhythm & blues mode and her jazzier vocal mode! The first half features the sassier r&b while the second half features the grander, jazzier Quincy Jones productions – which feature a who's who of incredible players! 22 tracks in all: "Fat Daddy", "Go Pretty Daddy", "TV Is The Thing","Feel Like I Wanna Cry", "Lean Baby", "Never Never", "Am I Blue", "My Man's An Undertaker", "Short Jon", "I Let A Song Go Out Of My Heart", "A Foggy Day", "What A Great Sensation", "I've Got You Under My Skin", "Darn That Dream", "I Diddle", "Wasn't It" and more.

Dinah WashingtonSwingin Miss D (with bonus tracks) ... CD CD format
EmArcy/Verve, Late 50s. Used ... $7.99
Swingin is right – as Dinah lets go with Quincy Jones orchestra, singing strong and hard in a set that's one of her best jazz sides from the 50s! Quincy knows how to mix just the right doses of straight jazz and tighter vocal arrangements – and Dinah's very comfortably at home in the setting, stretching out with a great sense of soul that really stands out. The album's an early example of Jones' great ability to work with singers – and titles include "I'll Close My Eyes", "Perdido", "Caravan", "You're Crying", "They Didn't Believe Me", "But Not For Me", and "Somebody Loves Me".
