Format: Audio CD
This is a top-ten jazz album of all time, especially if you like the big band format. Before Quincy Jones became the king of pop music producing and arranging, he was a fabulous jazz arranger and leader.
My brother, Bill Charlap, turned me on to it during this past summer's Jazz in July series at the 92nd street Y, where he is the artistic director. One concert in the series was a tribute to Quincy Jones and Oliver Nelson. They played one or two songs which are featured on this CD. Great stuff! Go ahead and check it out -- you will not be disappointed.

If I were told I was going to have to live on a desert island for the rest of my life, and I was only allowed to take 5 jazz records, this album would be one of them. I don't hand out the "genius" title very easily, but it's simple in this case... Quincy Jones IS a genius.

Whether you are a jazz aficionado or just want to add a few jazz albums to your repertoire, this album needs to be included. The textures of the songs, the arrangements make this the perfect jazz album. The band personnel which reads like a who's who flows through each sultry voicing and blasts with the confidence of a winner, which is what they are. Get this, you wont be disapointed.

For anyone who loves either classic jazz or big band music, you will love this CD. Mr Jones sweeps you with a blending of both that reminds you of what music is supposed to sound like and do,

Having found out about Quincy Jones' jazz background by pure accident, I can't seem to get enough of his early recordings. I heard tracks from this cd on my local jazz station and didn't stop until I had it(I could only find it at Amazon!!). Every aspect of every recording flows together perfectly. It has just about everything a jazz fan could want.
