Quincy Jones best tracks. Include tracks from compilation albums Exclude tracks from compilation albums The same track can appear on multiple albums, so excluding tracks from compilation albums helps to remove duplicates from this list. 1. Ai No Corrida (from the album The Dude).

The Dude is a 1981 studio album released and recorded by Quincy Jones. The album produced three . Top 40 hits and features the debut of vocalist James Ingram on the singles "Just Once" and "One Hundred Ways," which reached No. 17 and 14, respectively, on the Billboard Hot 100. ("One Hundred Ways" was sampled by MF Doom for the track "Rhymes Like Dimes," from his debut solo album, Operation: Doomsday.

Still, Quincy Jones notes that there was some resistance to the interracial romance implied by the song. Radio didn’t like the idea of Paul and Michael fighting over the same girl, and some stations wouldn’t play it, he says. Jackson’s instincts proved correct – the song made it to Number Two on the pop charts and all the way to Number One on the R&B singles chart. It turned out that Jones’ wife, Peggy Lipton (best known as Julie from The Mod Squad), knew the legendary horror movie actor Vincent Price. The idea was that he would just talk some horror talk like he would deliver in his famous roles, said Temperton. The night before the session, Quincy called and said, ‘I’m a bit scared. But Jones contended that the instrumental introduction was too long. You could shave on that intro, said Jones.

One reason why this best-of collection does not do justice to its subject is that it barely touches upon the fascinating tracks from all of Jones' A&M phases that feature galaxies of jazzmen. It is decent entertainment, though, for casual listening.
