As part of Verve's Standards series, Quincy Jones is spotlighted on eight tracks cherry-picked from his early recordings for Mercury. Included are previously released versions of "Tuxedo Junction," "They Say It's Wonderful," "Cast Your Fate to the Wind," and a live 1961 version of "Solitude." To hear more of his early recordings from this period, look for Pure Delight: The Essence of Quincy Jones and His Orchestra (1953-1964) on Razor & Tie.
