Quincy Jones - Complete Recordings 1960-1962

Quincy Jones - Complete Recordings 1960-1962


It was during the 1960s that Quincy Jones became a world renowned Jazz musician and composer of film soundtracks, but it was not until about the middle of the decade that success of this nature began to come his way, soon after he had composed the score for Oscar nominated The Pawnbroker. Indeed, during the first few years of the 1960s he lived as a working musician, bandleader and the musical director of Barclay Records - the French imprint of Mercury - but could barely earn enough to pay the bills. This however, did not prevent Quincy from continuing to perform and release music of a quite superlative nature.
While still in Paris, Quincy, along with his Jones Boys, recorded his first album of the 1960s, the upbeat I Dig Dancers. Released in 1961, his follow up, titled Around the World, was cut back in New York (to where he had returned in October 1960) and featured Quincys arrangements of songs and tunes from - just as it said on the tin - around the world. Over the next two years Jones continued releasing music at a prolific rate whilst drawing from influences far and wide, and by the end of 1962 his profile had risen considerably as he begun to be noticed in circles outside of the Jazz community.
This 4CD collection brings together the nine albums Quincy Jones made during 1960 1962, providing a comprehensive overview of a musician on the cusp of greatness.
