The Quintessence - Quincy Jones And His Orchestra. The Quintessence - Quincy Jones & His Orchestra. The Quintessence is an album by Quincy Jones and his orchestra. It was released in 1962 and was his only album for Impulse. One critic called it the sound of the modern, progressive big band at its pinnacle. Jones's band was an outgrowth of the orchestra used in the Broadway show Free and Easy and featured some of the personnel that Jones assembled in New York for the show's European dates.

Jazz 1962. Quincy Jones Essentials. Quincy Jones: Next Steps. United States. Despite its brevity - a scant 31 minutes - The Quintessence is essential to any appreciation of Jones and his artistry. The deep swing and blues in his originals such as the title track, Robot Portrait, and For Lena and Lennie create staggering blends. They are beautifully warm, with edges rounded, but the brass section is still taut and punchy. The reeds cool the heat enough to give the rhythmic dialogue in these tunes its inherent strolling swing. Quincy Jones - The Quintessence 1961. To favorites 1 Download album. Listen album.
