Say it isn't so!!! I have waited two long years for the release of this CD. I remember reading in JazzIz that Mr Jones was going to do a Brazilian CD of his earlier work. The title was to be called Soul Bossa Nostra. Are y'all kidding? Really? This is it? This is as good as it'll get? Is this all there is? Is there or will there be another CD to redeem this? What happened to Mr 'cutting edge, set the bar high, leave your ego @ the door' Jones? I'm so very, very disappointed. Why oh why did he feel he had to join the Santana, Sergio Mendes, Herb Alpert re-treaded, so-dreaded gravy train? For a Grammy? Doesn't he have enough? Even the download is low down, at a 99cent store price. $4.99? For a brand new Quincy Jones project? And he exhumed Barry White for this? Barry and every artist on that original track needs to whupp him with everything they can get their hands on in that secret garden. If he wanted to make a parody of himself, he's succeeded. He can submit this in the category of Comedy CD for that Grammy he's chasing. If the price sinks any lower, he may have to stand in line after the Thanksgiving Turkey for a pardon from the White House. Please don't let him make a video of P.Y.T. using Sara and Bristol Palin as the leads. Let's have a moment of silence for the artist formerly known as Quincy "Q" Jones. Just my 3cents.

it matters not that I am a huge fan of Q... I have to note that Q (on this project) is the "executive producer". Meaning, he was not at the board or in the booth when this piece of work was created. Most likely, he greenlit the project and gave his approval for release. Ouch! I hope he did so unenthusiastically. However, it should be duly noted his picture is on the cover. But, knowing Q, he was encouraging and nurturing all the way. The musicians and artists who put this album together are to blame/responsible or should take credit for the product created. More than likely, this is the best they could do. And for this current generation of listeners, this is probably good stuff. To my kids, AUTOTUNE IS FRESH! For me, its use means you don't have the chops to carry a tune. Times change. Tastes in music changes. I tell my two sons (both guitarists in their mid 20's) that it's their world and I'm just living in it. After listening to the album though, I realize it was not made for me. It was made for them. I can accept that. But if the future of music sounds like this, I'm crossing the road to the other side. This is a piece of work lacking execution, depth and/or substance. Mike, be glad you didn't have to hear this.

Truthfully only 7 of the 15 track's have Quincy Jones as a producer and those track's are:
1. Soul Bossa Nostra (Produced By Naturally 7 & Q)
2. Tommorrow (Produced By Wild Animals & Q)
3. Get The Funk Out Of My Face (Produced By Terrace Martin & Q)
4. Secret Garden (Produced By Jermaine Dupri & Q)
5. Betcha Wouldnt Hurt Me (Produced By Q-Tip & Q)
6. You Put A Move On My Heart (Produced By Scott Storch & Q)
7. Sandford & Son (Produced By Red One & Q)

I like (Tommorrow),(Secret Garden) & (You Put A Move On My Heart) because these track's sound like heavy Q production's or (re)productions if you will and every other track sadly sound's like rushed and unfocused compositions to put it nicely. I highly urge anyone who is intrested in purchasing this cd to not expect too much from these artist, for example quincy & michael jackson's massive hit (P.Y.T) is (AUTOTUNED) to death on the vocal's from T-Pain which completly make's the song annoying as hell which is sad because robin thicke's vocal's are quite good on (P.Y.T) but is drowned out by the autotune massacre, michael jackson would not approve of this remake more like rehash. I can only hope Q would allow for a remix of PYT and with only robin thicke's vocal's in the mix without AUTOTUNE ofcourse, his vocals are that good.

One of my alltime favorite Q work's is the Brothers Johnson track (Strawberry Letter 23) and when I saw (Akon's) name as guest vocalist I was seriously concerned this would be a throw away track and my fears have been answered because yet again this AKON gentleman has sucked all of the soul from the original song to create yet another boring remake, no real instrument's just another boring Pro-Tools software studio affair with oh yeah you guessed it (AUTOTUNE) vocals.

.... The time honored tradition of a collaboration album has been a staple for 30+ years in Quincy Jones' legacy. With each record since the early 70's, he has managed to incorporate styles and textures into his music that people wouldn't necessarily think would work together. The 70's psychadelia of "Mellow Madness" was a precursor to the funk of "Sounds... & Stuff Like That", which morphed itself into the Jazz/Pop/Soul/Funk mash-up of "The Dude". When "Back on the Block" arrived, the same thing happened - new styles, namely rap, had arrived... Quincy embraced it. - I take a break from my background information to note that all of the albums were not critically acclaimed. They won awards, they are masterfully produced, and in some cases more than others - they are classics. - Following "Back on the Block" and it's huge grammy win, was "Q's Jook Joint" which took the sounds of the 40's and threw them together with sounds of then modern times. This was a big critical disappointment, despite selling well and being held up by fans as yet another great one. Say what you want people, he sets trends by following what is "now". For "Q - Soul Bossa Nostra", Jones enlists some of today's biggest talents (and a few newbies) and makes a Quincy Jones album for 2010. As with all the other classics I've mentioned, people will detract from the grand scheme he's trying to play off, and concentrate on the fact that they as listeners aren't necessarily ready to hear their favorite songs covered by younger artists. In 2010, music is 9 times out of 10 heavily produced, with special vocal effects, deep bass, and some studio trickery. It just is how things are done now. Even the stripped down artists of today are guilty of embracing some of these techniques.Read more ›
