AllMusic Review by

Quincy Jones has been one of the most influential and important figures in modern music for over six decades, a true renaissance man wearing scores of musical hats including bandleader, solo artist, session player, songwriter, producer, arranger, composer, and record label executive. It doesn't stop there. He's also been an author, motion picture producer, and television producer, and the artists he's worked with, from Frank Sinatra, Miles Davis, and Count Basie to Michael Jackson, Paul Simon, Ray Charles, Aretha Franklin, and countless others, make for a truly amazing and impressive pantheon. This set features the Quincy Jones Big Band (which included Clark Terry, Benny Bailey, Phil Woods, Sahib Shihab, Quentin Jackson, Jimmy Cleveland and Les Spann at the time) on its stop in Sweden during the band's 1960 European tour.
