Comments

Equivalent release: Mercury SR-60673 (stereo).

with original Mercury inner sleeve.

Inside The Groove

An exciting live performance of Mr. “B”, being backed by the great Quincy Jones orchestra.

Personal Impression (and brief notes)

Mr. “B” in the sixties - the popularity was not so huge he used to get in the fourties, but his singing ability is always superb. Full of drive, follow-through and control. Also, the backing orchestra is beautifully superb - Quincy Jones' road band (featuring many talented musicians) adds another level of perfection with Quincy's great scores.

Strictly Personal Rating (to what extent I could enjoy this album)

9 out of 10
