Album Review

The multi-talented Quincy Jones has excelled at idiomatic combinations in his albums since the '60s, when his mix-and-match soundtracks for television and films alerted everyone that he'd switched from a pure jazz mode to a populist trend. Q's Jook Joint blends the latest in hip-hop-flavored productions with sleek urban ballads, vintage standards, and derivative pieces; everything's superbly crafted, though few songs are as exciting in their performance or daring in their conception as past Jones epics like Gula Matari or the score from Roots. Still, you can't fault Jones for his choice of musical collaborators: everyone from newcomer Tamia to longtime stars like Ray Charles, rappers, instrumentalists, male and female vocalists, percussionists, and toasters. The CD really conveys the seamless quality one gets from attending a juke joint, though it lacks the dirt-floor grit or blues fervor of traditional Southern and chitlin circuit hangouts. But no one's more knowledgeable about the spectrum of African-American music, nor better able to communicate it via disc, than Quincy Jones.

Customer Reviews

Outstanding Album

One of my most favorite albums of all time. Quincy Jones' greatest work in my opinion. This album covers jazz and hip hop with soul poured all over it. It's one of those rare albums that you can listen to all the way through every time. This is a rare example of what good music is showing how well Q has outdone himself. I recommend getting the whole album no exceptions. I may be young but I know what good music is and this is it right here!

Excellence Has No Boundaries...

This the album exceeded my expectations from the very beginning. The depth of Q's musical experience is well represented here; along with his diversity in genres. The man has the ability to seemlessly move through time and space; musically and artisticly. The collaborations are outstandings from Barry White to Brandy to Tone Luc to Queen Latifah to Ray Charles to Charlie Wilson...whow!!! Let the whole world bow and simply say....Q!!!. TheVMan

A masterful work of art

Q’s Jook Joint has today’s flavor with the old school music. This is a must have album for music lovers. You will never find this combination again.
