iTunes Review

Quincy Jones has unparalleled talent for bringing different sets of musicians together. For decades his occasional solo albums have served as meeting places for the leading talents of a particular era, and Q - Soul Bossa Nostra is no different. Jones is probably the only person on the planet who can unite gospel star BeBe Winans and scary Memphis street rappers Three 6 Mafia. Soul Bossa Nostra (a pun on “Soul Bossa Nova,” the 1962 Quincy Jones theme that was later resuscitated for the Austin Powers franchise) is a celebratory retrospective, but without the usual sloppy nostalgia. Jones asked the biggest and best stars of today’s rap and R&B scene to reinterpret songs from the composer’s back catalog. It’s a shrewd tactic of preserving his legacy while also carrying it into the future. The diversity of talent here is astonishing — aside from the big stars of today, Jones also reached out to Southern rap firebrand David Banner, hip-hop originator Q-Tip, and the aforementioned Winans. The results are fresh and often unexpected, and the album confirms Jones’ reputation as the most forward-thinking 77-year-old in modern music.

This music opens the eyes of so many who would never hear these artists otherwise. I could play this and both my daughter and my grandmom would enjoy it or at least listen without complaint. It only takes one song to open eyes (or ears) to new kinds of music.


I love Q and have most of these original songs but these remakes are terrible and strip the soul and groove out of classics that you would be better off searching for and downloading!

T-Pain doing PYT?

I'm sorry but MJ is the only one I want to hear sing that song, not someone who needs to use an autotune...... ruined a great song. seriously, what were you thinking?
