Quincy Jones Blindfold Test - Down Beat 1959

For this Blindfold Test Leonard Feather had Quincy Jones (b. March 14, 1933) focus on big bands including Benny Goodman, Frank Ortego - Sy Oliver, Harry James, Machito, and Thelonious Monk. He's a tough critic but does give praise to altoist Willie Smith for his distinct sound.
