I decided this week’s theme from my most favorite song.

My favorite song is ’The Midnight Sun Never Sets’.

When Quincy Jones was staying in Sweden in the early ’50s,he had written ‘The Midnight Sun Never Sets’.

The first performance was playing by Arne Domnerus who was alto sax player in Swedish.

He recorded several times with Quincy Jones in Sweden and was featured throughout ‘The Midnight Sun Never Sets’.

His playing in his early career was typical of the ‘cool’, sophisticated, technically accomplished and lyrical style of Swedish modern jazz of the 1950s.

This week, I want to post about Quincy Jones who is a composer of significant piece.

There is a big difference in two record sets I have owned.

In first set many photos of musicians were attached to liner note.

On the one hand, many illustrations of musicians were attached to liner note in second set.

These illustrations can be enjoyed even now.

Unfortunately I don’t know about the liner note in VOL.3.

This three set records had been used each three colors.

I will wait for information from the person who own the third set.
