Quincy JonesBig Band Bossa Nova ... CD
Mercury/Verve, 1962. Used ... $2.99
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". CD

Bell, Late 60s. Sealed ... $5.99
Swingers unite! Quincy Jones did the score for this very strange film about two couples who decided to freak out their marriages a bit. Some of the material features some jazzy remakes of Handel's "Hallelujah Chorus", but other tracks have a nice groovy sound to them. Includes a bunch of versions of "What the World Needs Now" – plus instrumental cuts "Giggle Grass", "Flop Sweat", "Dynamite", and "Sweet Wheat". LP, Vinyl record album

Quincy JonesBody Heat ... CD
A&M, 1974. Used ... $5.99
In the early 70s, Quincy Jones surrounded himself with some of the best young soul and jazz talent he could find, plus a few older pros – and the result was a great series of albums that spanned genres and created a whole new approach to modern R&B. This gem of an album was put together with a young Leon Ware and an older Ray Brown – and it features some killer mellow soul tracks that rank with Quincy's best work! Includes the sublime version of "If I Ever Lose This Heaven", plus "Body Heat", "Soul Saga", "Everything Must Change", "One Track Mind", and "Along Came Betty". CD

Quincy just never stopped putting out classic soulful albums! This one, from the early 80s, features a smooth jazzy blend of tracks, with a strong nod to the kinds of souped-up studio sounds that were being used by groups like The Crusaders, but also with a lot of the kind of soulfulness that made earlier albums so great. Features vocals by Patti Austin, and includes winners like "Ai No Corrida", "The Dude", "Betcha Wouldn't Hurt Me", "Velas", and "Razzamatazz". CD

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!

Quincy JonesQ – The Best Of Quincy Jones ... LP

An excellent set of 70s soulful fusion from Quincy – recorded during his legendary A&M years, when he was working with some of the best new singers in the soul business, like Leon Ware, Patti Austin, Luther Vandross, and James Ingram. The album leans towards the smoother soulful side of Quincy's work, and features many classic R&B oriented cuts like "The Dude", "Body Heat", "Is It Love We're Missin", "Superstition", "I Heard That", "Razzamatazz", and the Latiny groover "Ai No Corrida".

Quincy JonesQuincy Jones & His Orchestra At Newport 61 ... CD
Mercury (Japan), 1961. New Copy ... $14.99
Always-groovy big band work from Quincy – and even in a live setting at the mainstream Newport festival, he still sounds hipper than most of the cats of his generation! The lineup is great – with a group that includes Curtis Fuller and Melba Liston on trombones, and both Pat Patrick and Jerome Richardson on saxes – all playing with a host of other well-matched players, with the kind of seamless groove that Quincy brought to his other Mercury records at the time. Tracks are slightly longer and more open-ended than on Jones' studio sessions from the same period – and titles include "Meet BB", "Lester Leaps In", "G'Won Train", "Ghana", "Banja Luka", and "Evening In Paris".

Quincy JonesQuintessence ... LP
Impulse, 1961. Very Good- Gatefold ... $9.99
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".

Quincy JonesQuintessential Charts (This Is How I Feel About Jazz/Quintessence) ... LP
ABC, 1956/1961. Very Good 2LP ... $4.99
A split 70s LP – with two earlier classics! First up is How I Feel About Jazz – 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". Next is Quintessence – 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".

Another killer from Quincy! Man, he just couldn't miss with these hip 60s soundtracks, and the grooviness of this one is a real testament to his genius. About half the album's straight jazz numbers – played with some wonderful elements like Hammond solos, vibes, electric harpsichord and even some weird sound effects. The other half is orchestral, and the overall style is as cool as any of Quincy's other work from the time, and the album's filled with loads of groovy gems waiting to be rediscovered! Titles include "Psychosis", "Threadbare", "Preludium", "Fox's Sugar", "Big Sir", and "Funny Farm". LP, Vinyl record album

Quincy JonesSmackwater Jack ... LP
A&M, 1971. Near Mint- Gatefold ... $6.99
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

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". CD

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 JonesYou've Got It Bad Girl ... LP
A&M, 1973. Near Mint- ... $19.99
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".

Sonny StittSonny Stitt Plays Arrangements From the Pen Of Quincy Jones ... LP
Roost, 1955. Very Good ... $9.99
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!

Count BasieStanding Ovation ... CD
Dot/Universal (Japan), 1969. New Copy ... $14.99
One of the great Count Basie albums recorded during his short late life stay on Dot Records – a label who really helped him focus his energy and keep up that classic Basie "punch" in his grooves – but all without sacrificing the growth the group had gone through over the years! There's plenty of modern colors and tones in the mix here – elements from the Basie years with arrangers like Neal Hefti, Quincy Jones, and Billy Byers – but the presentation is also strong and straight, with a hell of a lot packed into just a little space – that mode that always made the Count such a great leader! Players include Marshal Royal on alto, Eddie Lockjaw Davis and Eric Dixon on tenors, Charlie Fowlkes on baritone, Harry Edison and Oscar Brasher on trumpets, and Grover Mitchell on trombone – on titles that include "Lil Darlin", "Jive At Five", "Broadway", "Cherry Point", "Every Tub", "Corner Pocket", and "Blue & Sentimental".

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".

More hit magic from the Brothers Johnson – still working with Quincy Jones at this point, and virtually setting up the blueprint for jazzy soul in the 80s! Backings are by an all-star team, and Rod Temperton's helping out Quincy with arrangements – going for that snapping groove approach he worked to best effect with Heatwave. The sound is tight, but never too slick – and The Brothers keep a nice funky undercurrent on the bottom of most tracks.

Early 50s material recorded by the late Clifford Brown – issued here in a classic "memorial" package slightly after his death in 1956! 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! The first half of material was recorded in 1953 – and features Brown soloing with Tadd Dameron's group on the tracks "Philly JJ", "Chose Now", and "Dial B For Beauty". The other set features Brown and Art Farmer as the lead soloists with the Swedish All Stars, a group led by Quincy Jones – and tracks on that session include "Stockholm Sweetnin", "Scuse These Blues", and "Lover Come Back To Me".

Impulse, 1960. Very Good Gatefold ... $14.99
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!

But even more importantly, the album also brings together the killer early 70s albums My Kind Of Jazz, volumes one through three – later instrumental records that really show Ray taking off from the spirit of the original Impulse sessions. These sides were recorded for Ray's Tangerine label, and all have a pretty darn hip feel – a mix of soul jazz modes that we like even more than most of Charles' vocal material!

At the time Hampton's orchestra featured Pete Badie on bass, Bill Mackel on guitar, Jay Peters on tenor, Walter Williams on trumpet and Edwin Frazier on tenor, plus many others. Quincy Jones also plays trumpet and did the arrangements for "Love For Sale".

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".

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

Milt JacksonBallad Artistry Of Milt Jackson ... LP
Atlantic, 1959. Very Good+ ... $5.99
A sweet set of ballads from vibist Milt Jackson that we dig as much for the silky smooth orchestrations by Quincy Jones as Milt's agile and crisp approach to the vibes. The strings and horns buoy the group nicely, which also features Connie Kay and under recorded guitarist Barry Galbraith on a number of tunes. Ten mellow numbers: "The Cylinder", "Makin Whoopee", "Alone Together", "Tenderly", "Don't Worry Bout Me", "Nuages", "Deep In A Dream", "I'm A Fool To Want You", "The Midnight Will Never Set" and "Tomorrow". LP, Vinyl record album

Henry ManciniThief Who Came To Dinner ... LP
Warner, 1973. Near Mint- ... $29.99
A keyboard classic from Henry Mancini – and one of his greatest soundtracks ever! The album's far far different than most of Mancini's other work – a stripped-down, slow-funk batch of tracks that mix together keyboards and organ, riffing out over rhythm and strings, in a mode that would make Quincy Jones weep! The main theme is a stunner – and it rolls out again and again in different versions with a nice moogy bit behind it, sounding almost like an Italian soundtrack tune – but with a lot more spacey soul! The rest of the soundtrack follows suit – sliding forward in a brilliantly slinky way – all without any common cliches of the time, and an amazingly balanced groove. Titles include "Tail Gate", "Jackie's Theme", "Dog Eat Dog", "Theme From Thief Who Came To Dinner", "Getaway", and "First Job". LP, Vinyl record album
