This week’s Vinyl Vault features a Quincy Jones album never released on compact disc: “I Heard That!” It was a double album released in 1976 on A&M Records. The first disc contained material that was new at the time and the second disc was a retrospective of Jones’ prior work with A&M including winners of Grammys and other awards. The music is wide ranging from straight ahead jazz to soul to African rhythms to funk. The supporting players are an all-star cast including players like Ray Brown, Toots Thielemans, Stanley Clarke, Alfonso Johnson, George Duke, Snooky Young, Phil Woods, Cat Anderson, Milt Jackson, Freddie Hubbard and many more.
Join Geoff Anderson Tuesday night, May 14 at 8:30pm on KUVO Jazz.
