Building on his first album with Creed Taylor, Quincy Jones' eclectic and ever-evolving tastes become apparent. Lead single "Bridge Over Troubled Water" is a R&B take on Paul Simon's hit, anchored by Valerie Simpson's emotive soulful vocal and a gospel choir. Jones' passion for African music is evident in the hypnotic pace of "Gula Matari", a dramatic piece over 13 minutes long. Jazz is in the spotlight in songs like "Walkin'", where bandmates Milt Jackson, Herbie Hancock and Hubert Laws shine during their solos, and Nat Adderley's "Hummin'" kicks the energy up a notch. Major Holley brings the house down with his scatting on bass. This record captures the palpable joy of its recording sessions.
