The Great Wide World Of Quincy Jones: Live!
by Quincy Jones
Released: Nov 1959
Label: Verve Records
This platter captures the famed Quincy Jones Big Band (which featured an amazing roster of star soloists) in concert in Switzerland (which is why Q speaks in French and German here). Highlights include "Moanin'" (Benny Bailey on trumpet) and "Stolen Moments," which features a smoking extended trumpet solo from Freddie Hubbard (who was also a part of the landmark Oliver Nelson Blues & The Abstract Truth sessions that originally featured the song).
