Program notes

A precocious talent in his teenage years, Quincy Jones had made a point of learning all the instruments in jazz orchestras, played for President Eisenhower and left more than one scholarship to join big bands led by the likes of Lionel Hampton. By the time of this 1961 he was in his late 20s and had built a reputation both in the US and in Europe as not only a fully-fledged conductor but also as one of the most exciting and hungry new arrangers on the scene.
