“Count ‘Em” Quincy Jones with Harry Arnold and his Swedish Radio Studio Orch. Recorded in Stockholm for Metronome Records (1958) A three-song EP with “Count ‘Em”, “Meet Benny Bailey” (featuring the added trumpet of … Benny Bailey) and “Cherokee” These tracks are also on the LP “Quincy’s Home Again”. Q writes in the notes, “The atmosphere, the warmth, the musicianship and the understanding I found in Sweden certainly make me consider it my spiritual home” Consider in contrast what blacks, including many brilliant jazz artists, were experiencing in their native home America in 1958 and why so many became expatriates in Europe for years. Thanks to Lp cover lover, ULF for another fine contribution.
