Quincy Jones - The Dude (1981), what do we want more musically. I don't know if the L.A session scene was bursting with creativity with the likes of Louis Johnson, John Robinson, Ian Underwood, Jerry Hey, Steve Lukather, Greg Philinganes and company or Mr. Jones is truly a genius himself, with no additional explanation, but one thing can affirm with precision, this album is a MASTERPIECE! A wonderful and dreamy mix of Disco-R&B-Jazz perfectly melded. And right after that, we know what happened, Michael Jackson's Thriller, and with that, no more is needed from this man.
