JONES, Quincy

I Dig Dancers



Cat Nº: HONEY054




Deliberately presented as a dance music release, this brilliant Quincy Jones album – first released on Mercury label in 1961 – comprises material from two marvelous big band performances recorded the year before in Paris and New York. Here the great composer and arranger leads a first class “dance organization”, a top-flight big band featuring the cream of NY Jazz musicians, among them: Clark Terry and Freddie Hubbard – trumpets, Curtis Fuller and Melba Liston – trombones, Phil Woods, Oliver Nelson and Sahib Shihab – saxes, Stu Martin – drums. An exquisite platter of highly swinging and danceable grooves signed by the genius of Quincy Jones
