I am most fond of his “This Is How I Feel About Jazz”.

It was the 1957 debut album by Quincy Jones.

The album was originally produced by Creed Taylor and released on ABC-Paramount.

In addition, this record became first big seller on ABC-Paramount.

Quincy Jones and Creed Tailor were already close friends when Quincy recorded the album.

They were the same age and had the same musical taste.

Also they were a trumpet player and had an unspoken empathetic relationship.

Quincy Jones played as arranger and conductor of three different recording sessions.

He convened superior musicians like Art Farmer, Phil Woods, Lucky Thompson, Hank Jones, Paul Chambers, Milt Jackson.

I went to famous jazz spot ‘Riverside’ in Fukuoka.

The owner is Youichi Kogushi(小串洋一).

I have known him since when he was company employee.

I’ve summarized his past blog about his conviction.

It has passed 13 years from he owned ‘Riverside’.

Until he run this spot, live performance was less in this place.

But at present, he has been held live performance every day.

He was said many harsh opinion from the old regulars.

Some performers were bad amateur and immature musicians.

But he has not changed his management policy.

He loves realistic Jazz.

When he was in Tokyo, jazz live performance was held from morning at ‘ Pit In’.

The audience was a few, but the musicians had been playing hard.

He decided that it is important to produce a live performance.

In particular, he is holding aggressively free jazz ,namely avant-garde jazz.

Two years ago May 2,he held free jazz festival at most famous hall in Fukuoka.

It is scheduled to hold a free jazz festival on May 2, this year.

He is hoping to cause avant-garde jazz in Fukuoka.
