2 albums on 1 CD
Big Band Bossa Nova (Mercury SR-60751), which marked Quincy Jones' first incursion into the Brazilian music genre. It presents an orchestra filled with great stars such as Clark Terry, Phil Woods, Paul Gonsalves, Rahsaan Roland Kirk, Lalo Schifrin, and Jim Hall.
BTW: "Soul Bossa Nova" was used to great effect as the theme for "Austin Powers".
As a bonus, this set includes Quincy's previous LP, The Quintessence (Impulse AS-11), in its entirety, as well as a complete session recorded in between both albums, from which one song, ""Shag Nasty"", has never appeared before on CD until now.
