Quincy Jones: The Hot Rock - Original Motion Picture Soundtrack and More

Quincy Jones delivers a sultry jazz score to the greatest caper film ever made. This baby has been sampled a lot in the last four decades, and it's not hard to see why - I mean, damn, look at his house band: Clark Terry, Gerry Mulligan, Grady Tate, Ray Brown. The perfect soundtrack to waiting out that trance state you get into every time someone says "Afghanistan banana stand." This LP was designed with a gatefold sleeve cut down to a 3.5-inch flap that folded down over the cast photo when closed.
