As much as I love Funk and Soul I have a sometime weakness for easy listening, which is not easy to arrange by the way. Here's a little swingin' journey through some beloved albums, that I partly bought more than 25 years ago. The picture is a clipping from the album "Queen & Quincy". A nice 1960s masterpiece by Dinah Washington together with Quincy Jones. Track 2, 4 and 8 are from that uniquely beautiful mercury pressing (MG 20928). Included is another great one: "Ella and Basie!" An original Verve pressing (V-4061) represented through tracks 1, 5 and 14. Use this mix for your sunday breakfast or when you have guests. Those who are into music will recognize quality and the others will not feel disturbed. Easy going!
