[Front Cover] Label Type : red Mercury type B

SIDE-B SR 61050-B- M1    (and some unreadable inscribed marks)



Comments

Track A-5 is electronically-reprocessed stereo from monaural master.

Inside The Groove

Quincy Jones' compiation from various sessions thru 1959 - 1965.

Personal Impression (and brief notes)

This LP holds variety of Quincy Jones Orchestra's tracks from 1959 thru 1965. Some are great jazzy big-band, while some sounds like space-age instrumental pop music.

The earliest tracks (A-3, A-4, B-3) are outtakes from March 1959 session for 45rpms. The personnel (and the music) resembles to his 1st leader LP on Mercury MG-20444 / SR-60129.

B-4 is an outtake from February 1961 session for Mercury PPS-2014 / PPS-6014.

B-5 is an outtake from June 1962 session which resembles to his famous Bossa Nova LP MG-20751 / SR-60751.

The rest are 1964-1965 session when Quincy Jones' music was beginning to change into a brand new breed...

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

6 out of 10
