Big Sound of Quincy Jones

Quincy Jones has been one of the most influential and important figures in modern music for over six decades, a true renaissance man wearing scores of musical hats including bandleader, solo artist, session player, songwriter, producer, arranger, composer, and record label executive. It doesn't stop there. He's also been an author, motion picture producer, and television producer, and the artists he's worked with, from Frank Sinatra, Miles Davis, and Count Basie to Michael Jackson, Paul Simon, Ray Charles, Aretha Franklin, and countless others, make for a truly amazing and impressive pantheon. This set collects three of Jones' early jazz-based LPs: 1956's This Is How I Feel about Jazz (recorded between September 14 and September 29, 1956), 1957's Go West, Man! (recorded February 25, 1957), and 1960's I Dig Dancers (recorded between February 27 and April 21, 1960), in a two-disc package.
