Quincy Jones - Live In Paris – 5-7-9 Mars / 19 Avril 1960

Quincy Jones, the great bandleader, arranger and trumpeter, was merely 25 years old when he decided to settle in a city with a taste for jazz that was close to cult-worship: Paris. Quincy studied under Nadia Boulanger and became a regular figure in Saint Germain-des-PrEs; he worked for Eddie Barclay, and also led sessions for Henri Salvador and The Double Six, who devoted a whole album to Quincy’s compositions. With the aid of Frank TEnot and Daniel Filipacchi, in 1960 he set up his own Big Band with 17 American musicians in a venture that was short-lived despite the immense artistic quality of the formation. The live album they recorded shows all the vitality and genius of the young arranger who, in only a few years, went on to become an essential figure in 20th century music, and its greatest pop producer thanks to his association with the legendary Michael Jackson. Patrick FREMEAUX The Live in Paris collection by Michel BrilliE allows listeners to hear previously-unreleased recordings (made at concerts and private- or radio-sessions) by the great 20th stars in jazz, rock & roll and song.These “live” takes, and the artists’ rapport with their audiences, gives these performances an additional soul and sensibility in counterpoint to the rigorous demands of studio recordings. Particular care was taken when restoring the sound of these tapes in order to meet CD standards while preserving the original colours of the period.Patrick FREMEAUX & Gilles PETARD
