Lost Quincy Jones/Bill Cosby Sessions Emerge

Concord Records will release two albums of previously unreleased Quincy Jones material dating from 1969-’71, when the mega-producer served as musical director for NBC’s The Bill Cosby Show. On June 22, Concord will release Quincy Jones & Bill Cosby: The Original Jam Sessions 1969, a disc of numerous informal jam sessions from Jones (pictured) and Cosby’s collaboration with musicians like Jimmy Smith, Milt Jackson and Ray Brown. Quincy Jones & Bill Cosby: The New Mixes, Vol. I will follow on July 13.

The New Mixes features remixes of Jones’ work by contemporary artists, DJs and producers with the goal of creating a bridge between the old and new. The album includes remixes by Mix Master Mike, Bedrock, Cornershop and Los Amigos Invisibles.
