Quincy Jones' "Summer in the City" available in the USA - DustyGroove review
Quincy Jones' "Summer in the City", produced by Arnaldo DeSouteiro for the Verve label, becomes available for US customers on October 1st, 2007, through the DustyGroove webstore.
That's what the Dusty Groove website says:
"A hip little collection of funky work from Quincy Jones -- nearly all of it from his key 70s years on A&M Records! The vibe here is totally great -- possibly the best-remembered sound of the Q, recorded at a time when he was also gracing the world with a fair bit of funky soundtracks too! The music is rooted in Jones' earlier big band modes, but opens itself up to 70s funk and soul strongly -- all in the hippest way possible, with a range of different styles that really expand the sound. There's a fair bit of electric elements mingling with the acoustic ones -- and the track selection includes a number of Quincy's most-sampled tunes over the years. Titles include "Brown Ballad", "I Never Told You", "Eyes Of Love", "Summer In The City", "Along Came Betty", "Tell Me A Bedtime Story", "Velas", "Stuff Like That", "Superwoman", "You've Got It Bad Girl", and "Walkin"."
