Quincy Jones – Soul Bossa Nova

Download or Listen to: Quincy Jones – Soul Bossa Nova from the Mercury Lp Big Band Bossa Nova

And now for something completely different. Happy Birthday United States! I’m taking a few off from the blogosphere to relax, gather my thoughts, and actually enjoy myself from the drudgery of the work week. Here’s something from the great Quincy Jones in 1962 off of his Mercury Lp entitled Big Band Bossa Nova, and “Soul Bossa Nova”. You may remember this from Austin Powers, but Hip Hop heads will remember it from the North of the Border jazz influenced band Dream Warriors, who sampled Quincy for “My Definition of A Boombastic Jazz Style”. I still play that side out at gigs, go figure. Have a safe and enjoyable weekend, and I’ll see you on Monday with one of the last Guest Mixes in the series. Here’s to the birthday of the USA, and as always, Keep Diggin’!
