As an arrager and collaborator with everyone from Count Basie, through Miles Davis to Michael Jackson, Quincy Jones is peerless. He has huge skill in getting a sound that is required. This piece of Latin Jazz history has, I guess, been revived by its central role in putting the mojo in the Austen Powers movies. Although Mike Meyers seems to specialise in disposible light comedy we have much to thank him for not leasr for helping to focus attention on this brilliant album, which many of us would previously have thought of as too cheesy for our tastes. Soul Bossa Nova is just one of the jems here. If you are still woried about this making you look too uncool then you can always turn up your CD Player full blast and put on Miles Davis Knd of Blue*/The Arctic Monkeys*/The Complete Wangner's Ring Cycle* (*delete as appropriate)afterwards. Good-time music for people who want music that puts a smile on their face.
