2 Albums on 1 CD: This is How I feel About Jazz & Go West, Man! Great early work from Quincy Jones -- 2 ABC big band sessions, back to back on one CD! First up is This Is How I Feel About Jazz -- a set that has Jones working in some of his hippest settings of the 50s -- scoring longish versions of jazz tunes for groups that include players like Lucky Thompson, Art Farmer, Gene Quill, Charles Mingus, Phil Woods, and Hank Jones. There's a sublime 10 minute version of "Walkin" that kicks off the album with a great soulful groove -- plus original tunes "Evening In Paris", "Stockholm Sweetnin", and "Boo's Blues", as well as a version of Cannonball Adderley's "Sermonette".

Next up is Go West -- a set in which Quincy turns his arranging style to a band filled with West Coast players -- getting them to groove a lot more than you'd expect! Players include Herb Geller, Art Pepper, Charlie Mariano, Bill Perkins, and Walter Benton. The tracks are short, with tight solo space, and most of them were written and arranged by West Coasters like Jimmy Giuffre, Lennie Niehaus, and Johnny Mandel. Titles include "Be My Guest", "London Derriere", "Kings Road Blues", "The Oom Is Blues", and "Bright Moon".
