Quincy Jones' Take on West Coast Cool
William Faust | Columbus, Ohio | 07/28/2000
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This is a surprisingly fresh disc featuring what is essentially a west coast style studio band in the 50's lead by arranger, composer and jazz trumpeter Quincy Jones. If you only know QJ as the Motown producer who vaulted Michael Jackson to superstardom, go back a little further. In the 40's he was a jazz trumpeter who played in many fine big bands including Lionel Hampton's alongside none other than Clifford Brown. This disc is an original set of QJ arrangements and compositions recorded when the west coast sound pioneered by Baker/Mulligan and matured by guys like Shorty Rogers and Bill Perkins was all the rage. Includes some of the best studio jocks of the day including Harry "Sweets" Edison. Highly recommended."
