    The Quintessence

    I am a massive fan of "classic" Big Band music which in my book is Count Basie, Ted Heath, etc.,

    I have only just discovered an album by Quincy Jones called "The Quintessence" [http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00...Fencoding=UTF8] and I am bowled over by it.

    May I recommend this album to anyone who is interested in Big Band music.

    Enjoy!
    Richard N.

    Hi Richard,
    I too, love this album. Years ago I met Billy Byers in NYC when he was working on "City Of Angels" and he told me had arranged that record. His favorite track: Invitation.

    Surely Quincy Jones arranged that album?
