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

Mercury/Wax Time (UK), 1961. Sealed (reissue)... $9.99
Groovy big band material, with that very cool 60s Quincy Jones sound! The record has a global gimmick – as Quincy makes a trip around the world, playing tunes associated with various nations, like "Under Paris Skies", "Dear Old Stockholm", "Come Back To Sorrento", "Baia", and "Mack The Knife". Features 2 great originals – "Hot Sake" and "Africana" – and comes packaged in a gatefold cover with sexy images of ladies and globes! LP, Vinyl record album

Quincy JonesBig Band Bossa Nova ... LP
Mercury, Mid 60s. Very Good+ ... $12.99
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

Reprise, 1972. Very Good+ ... $9.99
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". LP, Vinyl record album

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 "One Hundred Ways". LP, Vinyl record album

Quincy JonesGreat Wide World Of Quincy Jones ... CD
EmArcy, 1959. Used ... $4.99
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

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.

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

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

A very soulful set of big band material from Quincy – 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 JonesRoots – Original Soundtrack ... CD
A&M/Varese, 1976. New Copy ... $8.99 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

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

Mercury/Verve, 1965/1966. Used ... $16.99
2 of Quincy Jones' groundbreaking 60s soundtracks on one CD! The material here isn't funky like his 70's work, and shows Quincy more in a dark brooding thriller vein. The Pawnbroker score has an orchestra filled with great jazz players like Freddie Hubbard, Anthony Ortega, Oliver Nelson, Elvin Jones, and others – and it also features a vocal performance by Sarah Vaughan on the bonus 45 rpm issue of the film's main theme. Other titles include "Harlem Drive", "Naked Truth", "Rack 'Em Up", and "Death Scene". Even better, though is The Deadly Affair – a sublime soundtrack from Quincy! The score has a great approach that mixes crime jazz tunes with breezier numbers – inflected with a nice bossa sound, and a cool "jazz over the top" style that makes the melodies linger nicely long after they're done! Astrud Gilberto sings the wonderful cut "Who Needs Forever" – and other tracks include "Blondie Tails", "Instrumental Main Theme 2", "Ridiculous Scene", "Bobb's At Gunpoint", and "Dieter's First Mistake".There's a total of 23 cuts in all, which makes for a nice full CD of groovy soundtrack material!

BBE (UK), 1970s/2016. New Copy 2 CDs ... Out Of Stock
An incredible collection of Stevie Wonder cover versions – different versions of familiar tunes, but ones that really manage to sparkle with all the righteous soul of the Stevie himself! It's been over a decade since DJ Spinna brought us the last version of his Wonder Of Stevie series – and during that time, he's managed to come up with a huge amount of great tracks that make the whole thing go way way deeper than before – not just cuts that copy the Wonder mode, but which seem to draw strong inspiration from its genius, and really soar to the skies! Much of the music here resonates with a charm that's located around the years of albums like Music Of My Mind and Innervisions, with all the jazzy currents that might imply – and some cuts are 70s vintage, others are more contemporary. Titles include "Bird Of Beauty" by US Atlantic First Navy Show Band, "It's My Pleasure" by Billy Preston, "Love's In Need Of Love Today" by John Minnis Big Bone Band, "As" by Tony Sherman, "Buttercup" by Jackson 5, "Have A Talk With God" by East St Louis Gospelettes, "Betcha Wouldn't Hurt Me" by Quincy Jones, "Golden Lady" by Reel People with Tony Momrelle, "If You Don't Love Me" by GC Cameron, "If She Breaks Your Heart Again" by Foreign Exchange, "Don't You Worry Bout A Thing" by Black Sugar, "Go Home" by Jrod Indigo, and "Make My Water Boil" by David Ruffin. 2CDs – one of the cuts unmixed, one with the tracks in a continuous mix by Spinna!

✨✧ Ann Margret/Marty PaichSongs From The Swinger & Other Swingin Songs/Pleasure Seekers ... CD
RCA/El (UK), 1965/1966. New Copy ... $11.99
Two great Ann Margret soundtracks back to back on a single CD! The Swinger is Ann-Margret at her grooviest – singing the super-groovy theme from The Swinger – perhaps her greatest film appearance ever! There's a mod bounce to the album that goes way way beyond any of Ann's other albums of the period – thanks to arrangements from Marty Paich, Quincy Jones, and Johnny Williams – all of whom put a nice sort of lilt in the backings, and manage to capture Ann at her sexiest. The title tune "The Swinger" is worth the price of entry itself – as it's a catchy, guitar-twanging number delivered in an incredibly breathy mode – supported by 2 great instrumentals from the film as well, "Swinger's Holiday" and "Kelly's Dance". But even on more conventional numbers, Ann's got a great sound here – bringing whole new sexy life to tracks that include "I Wanna Be Loved", "By Myself", "I Just Want To Make Love To You", "More", and "Cute". Pleasure Seekers is a dreamy little soundtrack from Ann-Margret! The record features 4 unique vocal numbers by Ann – including "Madrid/The Pleasure Seekers", "Next Time", Something To Think About", and "Everything Makes Music When You're In Love" – plus instrumental tunes by Lionel Newman. Newman's work is partially snoozy, as it can be when he's scoring a more dramatic film – but there are some nicer groovy bits that really fit the mood of this 60 sex comedy. Nice numbers include the Latinized tracks "Romantic Bossa Nova", "Pleasure Seekers Bossa Nova", and "Zig A Sig A Ding Boom Bah". CD

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".

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! Titles include "Song Of The Islands", "Stringing The Blues", "The One I Love", "Blues Bittersweet", "She's Funny That Way", and "Summertime". CD

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! Other tracks include "Right On Time", "Q", "Free Yourself, Be Yourself", and "Love Is". LP, Vinyl record album

Oscar Brown JrKicks! – The Best Of Oscar Brown Jr ... CD
Sony/BGP (UK), Early 60s. New Copy ... $10.99 18.99
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".

The other stuff's even better, though – as it's arranged by Gigi Gryce, whose cool floating style is a perfect one for Betty's incredible voice.

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

Sugar/Cinedelic (Italy), 1977. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)... $34.99
Sweet funky soundtrack work from Stelvio Cipriani – one of the maestro's best late 70s film scores, and one of his grooviest too! The music here has all the sharp, soulful elements of early 70s American soundtracks by Quincy Jones or Lalo Schifrin – complete with wah wah guitar, sweet funky flute, bumping basslines, and even some mighty nice keyboards – all served up without ever pushing things too far over the top – so that the balance of funk, jazz, and more scene-setting elements is perfect – that really sort of special balance you get only on the few best records by Jones or Schifrin. 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! LP features 24 tracks in all – very nicely done! LP, Vinyl record album

Richard EvansRichard Evans ... LP
Horizon, 1978. Very Good+ ... $7.99
One of the few albums as a leader by Chicago Soul genius Richard Evans – a key late 70s effort that perfectly sums up all his genius on record for countless other artists! 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".

Mercury/Wah Wah (Spain), 1969. New Copy (reissue)... $29.99
Very cool work from this unique Welsh group of the 60s a combo who might have started out in beat group modes, but really go for something different on this unique set! Eyes Of Blue have this spacious style that almost recalls the Moody Blues at times – but they're also much more gritty and soulful as well – almost as if they hit territory between the Moodies first record and their ambitous later works, but also draw on wider musical references that have them covering a Django Reinhardt tune on one track, and throwing in some classical references on another. Titles include the cut "Merry Go Round", which they did for a film with Quincy Jones – plus "The Light We See", "Souvenirs", "Little Bird", "Door", "Spanish Blues", "Chances", and "After The War".

Lesley Gore may have cried at her party, but by the time of this third LP she's very much past the point of tears – and working her way through a big assortment of boy-themed tunes promised in the title! The album's about as sublime as you can get for 60s girl pop – set to arrangements by Claus Ogerman, produced by Quincy Jones, and delivered with this punch that's way past the stock weepies of the scene – that special sort of girl power that only Gore could get this right! Tunes are all pretty darn groovy – and seem to include a few originals just for the set – that special kind of no-filler approach that also made so many of Lesley's albums from the period so wonderful. Titles include "Boys", "It's Gotta Be You", "Don't Call Me", "That's The Way Boys Are", "Leave Me Alone", "That's The Way The Ball Bounces", "I'm Coolin No Foolin", and "I'll Make It Up To You".

Rej plays plenty of keys, sings lead vocals, and also produces throughout – and the album's got a very solid post-Zapp sound that's a fair bit better than most other imitators from the generation. And while Griffin may not be set to knock any of the bigger soul artists out of the charts, the strength of the keyboards really supports the vocals nicely – and the album's an electric 80s groove delight throughout! Titles include "No Humans Allowed", "Throw Down", "Move", "I Really Love You", "Hot Fingers", "Lock It Up & Rock It", "Can't You See", and "Shoot Your Shot". LP, Vinyl record album
(Cover has a light wear & a promo stamp.)

✨✧ 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
(In original shrinkwrap with hype sticker – Includes the printed inner sleeve.)

Michael JacksonBillie Jean (double a-side single) ... 7-inch
Epic, 1982. Very Good+ ... $7.99
We know, this huge hit got well overplayed in its heyday, not to mention still getting thrown into rotation a bit more than some other deserving MJ cuts, but you can't argue with the solid Quincy Jones production that gave this track its top of the charts status! 7-inch, Vinyl record
(Promo in an Epic sleeve. Label has some pen.)

Michael JacksonOff The Wall ... CD
Epic, 1979. Used ... $2.99
Michael, if only you'd stayed at this level! This 1979 solo album by Michael is a killer batch of soul grooves – one of 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! CD

✨✧ Michael JacksonThriller ... LP
Epic, 1982. Very Good+ Gatefold ... $16.99
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!

Les McCannInvitation To Openness – The Jazz & Soul Photography Of Les McCann 1960 to 1980 (hardcover) ... Book
Fantagraphics, 2015. New Copy ... $19.99 39.99
An incredible lost side of the many talents of the great Les McCann – the ultra-hip pianist, singer, and jazz composer who we've loved for years! This book showcases McCann's lesser-known skills as a photographer – a subtle shutterbug who would often take pictures in the same spaces he was performing – gaining backstage access to other musicians, and also shooting them in performance as well – all with a sensitivity that goes far beyond the usual music journalist photographs! The candid shots are especially wonderful – and capture various musical legends in ways we've never seen before – often a bit tuned-down, and much more down to earth than you might expect. The heavy book features a wealth of subjects – including Stevie Wonder, Sonny Rollins, Tina Turner, Ben Webster, Grover Washington Jr, Donald Byrd, Muhammad Ali, Average White Band, James Coburn, John Coltrane, Bill Cosby, Paul Desmond, Angie Dickenson, Eugene McDaniels, Wes Montgomery, Jimmy Smith, Pops Staples, Wilson Pickett, Lou Rawls, Jesse Jackson, Quincy Jones, Aretha Franklin, Redd Foxx, Duke Ellington, Dexter Gordon, Dizzy Gillespie, and dozens more. 200 pages, hardcover, oversized, and filled with black and white images!
