Format: Audio CD
Sorry, Q, but as a fan of yours for over four decades, I can't relate to these "reworkings." They are pale successors to the original versions, even with an all-star cast of contemporary artists. I suppose in an attempt to garner the younger listener, the producer enlisted the aid of the likes of T-pain, Akon, and Jamie Foxx, to name a few but these versions don't come close to matching the genius of the original recordings, even with the big-name trappings.

Sergio Mendes successfully traveled similar territory in his last three recordings, by managing to incorporate the present without destroying the past.

Q, unfortunately, ruined some true classics in an attempt to latch on to the hip-hop generation, producing a disc that alienates his fan base and probably doesn't do enough to attract younger audiences.

Barry ("The Secret Garden"), Michael ("P.Y.T.") and even Raymond Burr ("Ironside") have to be uttering a heavenly groan to the songs on this album.

This was not Back on the Block or The Dude.....but these re-workings were for me more successful than say Q's Jook Joint. The first 3 tunes set Mr Jones's stall out early, Ironside, with a hip-hop vibe. Strawberry Letter 23, OK Akon needs to get over the autotune things, but this was a haunting take that takes you in another direction. Soul Bossa Nostra is one of the coolest tunes I've heard in a while.

The rest of the CD takes a bow to the Brothers Johnson and George Benson. I have recently repurchased Mellow Madness, and honestly, I believe that Q's Soul Bossa Nostra stands its ground!

Quincy Jones is so iconic, it's difficult to really comprise any meaningful music tribute which encompasses every nuance of his genius.This is a good buy, featuring some great new arrangements and not so new voices.

Having read reviews on this cd it's either something you love or something you hate. I think this is brilliant. I think Quincy Jones is really excellent on this type of recording. The people objecting to these reworkings must like him recording in a more jazz style. Personally I loathe jazz, but love his more funk/jazz mode. This album really stands out and is sure to become a real collectors item in years to come. One or two tracks don't really work, but overall a great set of tracks and this from someone that is over sixty. 5+ star album.
