Roy Haynes & Quincy JonesJazz Abroad ... LP
EmArcy/Doxy, Mid 50s. New Copy (reissue)... $10.99
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". LP, Vinyl record album

Quincy JonesBirth Of A Band Vol 2 (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Mercury (Japan), 1959/1960. Used ... $6.99
We've never seen an original pressing of "Volume 2" of this LP, so we're assuming this is a Japanese-only vinyl issue of outtakes from those sessions. The original side's a very swingin', very groovy early album from Quincy – a big band recording, but handled with soulful touches that really set it apart from the genre! The band is a great one all the way through, featuring solos by Zoot Sims, Sahib Shihab, Phil Woods, Clark Terry and Kenny Burrell. A number of tracks are in a soul jazz mode, others more straight ahead – 11 tracks, including "Moanin", "Daylie Double", "Syncopated Clock", "A Parisian Thoroughfare", "G'Wan Train" and "The Preacher". CD includes 3 bonus tracks, "The Hucklebuck", "Blues In The Night", and "After Hours". CD

Quincy JonesGreat Wide World Of Quincy Jones ... CD
EmArcy, 1959. Used ... $9.99
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 JonesHot Rock ... LP
Prophesy, 1972. Very Good+ Gatefold ... $9.99
A sweet little soundtrack by Quincy – to an early 70s heist film that starred Robert Redford, George Segal, and Zero Mostel! The album's got a feel that's very much in the mode of Quincy's best cop show/crime work of the time – with some nice jazzy touches, handled by a host of quality players that include Jerome Richardson, Gerry Mulligan, Chuck Rainey, and Carol Caye – plus a few vocal numbers by the lovely "Tata"! The record's got some very nice instrumentals – especially the "Hot Rock Theme" – and tracks include "Talking Drums", "Slam City", "Sahara Stone", and "Miasmo". LP, Vinyl record album

Quincy JonesI Dig Dancers – 7 inch jukebox ep ... 7-inch
Mercury, Early 60s. Very Good+ (pic cover)... $2.99
Call it a love of dancers or just plain Quincy groove – the album's got lots of nice tight tracks that are a perfect showcase for the ways in which Quincy had such a huge influence on jazz in the 60s! The tunes are often old standards, but done here in a style that's nicely syncopated – taking on that Jones love of space and sound, and working it through some big band tracks at a level that creates grooves that are a lot hipper than you'd hear on albums like this from most of his contemporaries! And even liner notes from Dorothy Kilgallen can't keep this one from being nice – with tracks that include "Moonglow", "The Midnight Sun Will Never Set", "You Turned The Tables On Me", "Pleasingly Plump", and "A Sunday Kind Of Love". 7-inch, Vinyl record

Nice Quincy Jones soundtrack for the first "Mr. Tibbs" film. Roland Kirk's in the orchestra, and you can hear him nicely in a soul jazz groove on a number of tracks. Titles include "Whipping Boy", "Nitty Gritty Time", "Shag Bag, Hounds & Harvey", "Blood & Roots", and "It Sure Is Groovy". Ray Charles sings the title track, but that's a bit of a snooze. Sorry Ray!

Paramount, Early 70s. Very Good ... $24.99
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. US version, on nice heavy vinyl! LP, Vinyl record album

Quincy JonesMellow Madness ... CD
A&M (Japan), 1975. New Copy ... $19.99
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! Other tracks include "Paranoid", "Cry Baby", "Tryin To Find Out About You", and "Listen (What It Is)". CD

Jazz Haus (Germany), 1961. New Copy ... $21.99 24.99
An unreleased live performance from the Quincy Jones all-star group of 1961 – heard here on a famous European tour that also had the individual members really having a great influence on the scene overseas! The lineup here is something of a dream band – as the record features solos from Melba Liston and Curtis Fuller on trombones, Budd Johnson and Eric Dixon on tenor, Benny Bailey and Freddie Hubbard on trumpets, Sahib Shihab on baritone sax, Patti Brown on piano, Phil Woods on alto, and Les Spann on guitar and flute – all in these hard-driving arrangements that have that impeccable early Quincy Jones groove – a soulful reworking of the large group sound of the generation before, in ways that set fire to groups like the Clarke Boland Big Band, and other European ensembles. Titles include "Ghana", "Banja Luka", "Summertime", "Stolen Moments", "Gwan Train", "Lester Leaps In", and "Caravan". CD

Quincy JonesRoots – Original Soundtrack ... CD
A&M/Varese, 1976. New Copy ... $12.99 13.99
Quincy Jones may be best remembered for his funky soundtrack work of the 70s – but the man can also hit a deeper, more serious vein when he wants – as he does on this ambitious album-length project inspired by the landmark Roots mini-series! The music isn't a straight soundtrack from the program, but instead evokes the longer narrative over the passage of its different selections – working as its own "saga of an American family", as it moves from African roots, through years of oppression, to moments of pride and power – amidst larger orchestrations from Jones, with help from Letta Mbulu on some key vocals, and more help from Bill Summers, James Cleveland, and even Lou Gossett. Titles include "Many Rains", "Free At Last", "Jumpin De Broom", "Ole Fiddler", "Boyhood To Manhood", "Oluwa", and "Motherland". CD

Quincy JonesThey Call Me Mister Tibbs ... LP
United Artists, Late 60s. New Copy (reissue)... $11.99
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

Quincy JonesThis Is How I Feel About Jazz (plus bonus tracks) ... CD
ABC/Impulse, 1956. Used ... $6.99
Fantastic – and an important early album from Quincy Jones! Q's working here in some of his hippest settings of the 50s – scoring longish versions of jazz tunes for groups that include players like Lucky Thompson on tenor, Herbie Mann on flute, Art Farmer on trumpet, Phil Woods and Gene Quill on alto sax, Hank Jones on piano, and even Charles Mingus on bass! As with most Jones albums of the time, Quincy has a way of making a bigger group sound nice and lean – hitting some especially nice edges along with the rhythms, and really showing the way towards a new soulful sound for a bigger band. Titles include a sublime 10 minute version of "Walkin" that kicks off the album with a great soulful groove – plus original tunes "Evening In Paris", "Stockholm Sweetnin", and "Boo's Blues", as well as a version of Cannonball Adderley's "Sermonette". Also includes some great bonus tracks from the Go West album too! CD

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.

Dinah Washington with Quincy JonesQueen & Quincy ... LP
Mercury, Late 50s. Near Mint- ... $11.99
A 60s collection that brings together sides Dinah Washington cut with Quincy Jones in the 50s – packaged with a cover photo that clearly shows the affection between the pair! The set's an early one for Jones, and 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 most tracks originally appeared on the Swingin Miss D album for Emarcy. Titles include "You Let My Love Grow Cold", "Caravan", "Perdido", "Never Let Me Go", "Makin Whoopie", "Somebody Loves Me", "They Didn't Believe Me", and "Is You Is Or Is You Ain't My Baby".

Andy Williams with Quincy JonesMademoiselle De Paris (Japanese paper sleeve edition) ... CD
SSJ (Japan), 1960/1961. New Copy ... $22.99
Really great material from Andy Williams – some of the grooviest sounds we've ever heard from the singer, thanks to backings from Quincy Jones! The set features live sides cut for the Let's Go To Town show issued for radio by the National Guard – and the album's got a similar feel to the great Williams/Jones album on Cadence from the same time, but with a vibe that's even more jazz-based overall! Andy's a hell of a singer in the right setting – and this album's even more sublime than his studio album with Quincy – as it offers up a fair bit of instrumental tracks from Jones' great ensemble of the time, which means even more great work on some of the solo passages. Dave Grusin plays piano on a few tracks, too – and titles include "Pleasingly Plump", "Gwan Train", "Boum", "The Midnight Sun Will Never Set", "Domino", "Air Mail Special", "Lester Leaps In", "Mademoiselle De Paris", and "Clap Yo Hands/I Won't Dance".

Patti AustinBody Language ... CD
CTI/King (Japan), 1980. New Copy ... $13.99
A sweet blend of jazz and soul from Patti Austin – and a set that's a bit different than some other CTI albums of the 70s – given that it was recorded down south, at deep soul powerhouse Muscle Shoals! The sound is surprisingly rootsy on a few numbers – and warmly jazzy on others – and Patti's still got all the polish she picked up from her years with Quincy Jones, but she's also stepping out a bit more as an artist with a stronger emotional palette. Austin works with some great original material that includes the tracks "(Ooh-Wee) He's Killing Me" and "I Can't Stop" – as well as surprising covers, like Squeeze's "Another Nail From My Heart", Isaac Hayes' "Body Language", and Bob Seeger's "We've Got Tonight".

Havana Candy, indeed – as singer Patti Austin's in her sweetest mode of the 70s – stepping off of years of background vocals for others, and really emerging as a great soul star on her own! Patti got the chance to cut some soul singles back in her early days – but work like this really unlocks her jazzier side, too – that spirit she developed in her work with Quincy Jones, taken to even more expressive heights on her own. Arrangements are by Larry Rosen and Dave Grusin – moody, mellow in a style that's perfect for Patti's voice – and players on the set include Grusin on keyboards, Eric Gale on guitar, Richard Tee on keyboards, and Ralph MacDonald on percussion – all-star CTI players who really keep things rights! Titles include "I Need Somebody", "We're In Love", "Lost In The Stars", "Havana Candy", and "I Just Want To Know". CD

Jones and Basie worked together in a number of settings during the 60s – including a very successful album for Frank Sinatra on Reprise – but here, the pair are really going full-on and hard-swinging, in a fresh style that's got all the hipness of Quincy's budding talent in the 60s, played with the deeply soulful manner of the still-great Basie band of the time. Titles include "Rat Race", "For Lena & Lennie", "The Big Walk", "Meet BB", "Jessica's Day", "Muttnik", and "Quince". LP, Vinyl record album

Don't worry about any too-commercial or pop modes going on here – as the arrangements are all super hip, and handled by talents like Quincy Jones and George Williams – who keep things in this dark-tinged style that's just perfect for the key talents in the Basie group, as the album features standout solos on almost every number – including a bit of tenor from guest Ben Webster!

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 pair are still working with Quincy Jones at this point, and the record's filled with lots of tight jazzy grooves that certainly show Quincy's touch – and which set the record apart from a number of similar mainstream funk records flooding the market at the time. The standout cut on the album is their great reading of "Strawberry Letter 23" – originally done by Shuggie Otis in a stoner version, but nicely stripped down here by the Bros, and given a very nice pop psychedelic soul twist!

And while Brown never recorded much for Prestige – and never really as a leader – these sides are still a great example of his completely unique touch on the trumpet!

Some of the most unique vocal work ever recorded – a stunning collection of Columbia sides by Oscar Brown Jr, a singer who mixed together equal parts jazz, soul, and folk – and came up with a sound that was all his own! Oscar bubbled out of the hip Chicago scene of the early 60s – and had a much more righteous approach than most of his contemporaries – not only writing his own lyrics for most of the tunes, but working in a genre-blending style that crossed over to a variety of difference audiences. Oscar could groove with the best in a southside club, but also appeal to the northside intellectuals – opening doors wherever he went with a fresh approach to jazz vocals! The set features work from all 4 of his Columbia albums – including a number of tracks on CD for the first time – and features arrangements by Quincy Jones, Floyd Morris, and Ralph Burns – on 23 tracks that include "All Blues", "Work Song", "Excuse Me For Living", "The Snake", "Mr Kicks", "Afro Blue", "Signifying Monkey", "Dat Dere", "Hazel's Hips", "Jeannine", "Opportunity Please Knock", "The Tree & Me", "Elegy (Plain Black Boy)", "Tall Like Pine", and "But I Was Cool".

And while Cipriani can sometimes veer towards the more slinky, sexy side of the spectrum, he hardly does so here – as even the mellower moments have a nice subtle sort of groove, and continue the spirit of jazz.

EmArcy, 2009. Used ... $4.99
A stunning big band session from trumpeter Roy Hargrove – one that marks his emergence to a whole new level of jazz! The album comes as a real surprise to us – quite different than both Roy's small combo work, and some of his more groove-based records – and although you can hear elements of both those styles in these tracks, the overall feel is quite different too – with almost an early 60s Quincy Jones approach to scoring – soulful one minute, but also quite sophisticated too – with a masterful ear for color, tone, and timing that we might never have expected from Hargrove! Roy's trumpet and flugelhorn are in the lead of the large lineup on most numbers, but there's also a few tracks that features guest vocals from Roberta Gambarini – a singer with just the right undercurrent of sadness to slide into the shimmering charts. Roberta sings on the tracks "La Puerta" and "Everytime We Say Goodbye" – and other numbers include "Roy Allan", "Tschipiso", "Trust", "Mambo For Roy", "Ms Garvey Ms Garvey", "Velera", and "Requiem".

Lurlean HunterLonesome Gal ... LP
RCA, 1956. Good+ ... $6.99
Moody set of vocals recorded by this obscure Chicago singer. Lurlean got her start at the classy south side Club DeLisa, home to Sun Ra, and a host of other Chicago talents – but by the time of this recording, she'd moved downtown, and had become a classy smoky voiced singer with a good talent for more mature material. This hard to find early session features backing by Al Nevins, and arrangements by Quincy Jones and Marion Evans. Tracks include "Brief Encounter", "On Green Dolphin Street", "Alone Together", and "A Stranger In Town". LP, Vinyl record album
(Black label mono pressing with a deep groove. Cover in nice shape, has a "meet the girls" sticker in one corner.)

Michael JacksonBad ... LP
Epic, 1987. Very Good+ Gatefold ... $24.99
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". LP, Vinyl record album
(Includes the printed inner sleeve.)

Michael JacksonOff The Wall ... LP
Epic, 1979. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)... $18.99 20.98
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
Also available Off The Wall ... LP 19.99
