  • It was nominated for six other Grammys. Tamia's performance of "You Put A Move On My Heart" was nominated for Best Female R&B Vocal Performance; the same song, written by Rod Temperton, was nominated for Best R&B Song.
  • "Slow Jams," performed by Babyface, Tamia, Portrait and Barry White, and "Stomp," performed by the cast of the play "Stomp" with Mr. X, Melle Mel, Coolio, Yo-Yo, Chaka Khan, Charlie Wilson, Shaquille O'Neal and Luniz, were both nominated for Best R&B Performance By A Duo Or Group With Vocal.
  • "Rock With You," performed by Heavy D, was nominated for Best Rap Solo Performance. Quincy Jones and Sam Nestico's arrangement of "Do Nothin' Till You Hear From Me" was nominated for Best Instrumental Arrangement With Accompanying Vocal.
  • During his 50 years in the music business, Quincy Jones has seemingly done it all. He was an arranger for Count Basie as a teenager, played trumpet behind
  • Ella Fitzgerald in the '50s, and directed big bands for Frank Sinatra and others throughout. By providing Michael Jackson's THRILLER with its signature sound, Q also gained legendary status as a pop producer. Now, Jones celebrates his magnificent career on Q'S JOOK JOINT, whose title pays homage to the rural Southern establishments which gave birth to the blues and jazz (which, in turn, gave birth to virtually everything else).
  • Rap, soul, pop and jazz get along famously at Quincy's fantasy night-spot. Witness Queen Latifah rhyming over Benny Golson's familiar "Killer Joe," or Phil Collins playing the crooner on Duke Ellington's "Do Nothing Till You Hear From Me." And "Stomp," featuring Melle Mel, Coolio and Shaquille O'Neal, is as joyous as rap gets, combining the raw energy of hip-hop with the sophisticated arrangements of THRILLER and OFF THE WALL.
  • In lesser hands, all this genre-crossing would be a well-meaning hodge-podge. Yet, Jones holds it together with his ability to make a track groove, no matter what the style. Whether it is the soaring lead trumpet line on "Let The Good Times Roll," or the ultra-smooth synth pads and drum programming that make Tamia's rendition of "You Put A Move On My Heart" swoon, Jones makes sure the emphasis never strays too far from making each track sizzle.

  • The multi-talented Quincy Jones has excelled at idiomatic combinations in his albums since the '60s, when his mix-and-match soundtracks for television and films alerted everyone that he'd switched from a pure jazz mode to a populist trend. Q's Jook Joint blends the latest in hip-hop-flavored productions with sleek urban ballads, vintage standards, and derivative pieces; everything's superbly crafted, though few songs are as exciting in their performance or daring in their conception as past Jones epics like Gula Matari or the score from Roots. Still, you can't fault Jones for his choice of musical collaborators: everyone from newcomer Tamia to longtime stars like Ray Charles, rappers, instrumentalists, male and female vocalists, percussionists, and toasters. The CD really conveys the seamless quality one gets from attending a juke joint, though it lacks the dirt-floor grit or blues fervor of traditional Southern and chitlin circuit hangouts. But no one's more knowledgeable about the spectrum of African-American music, nor better able to communicate it via disc, than Quincy Jones. ~ Ron Wynn
Professional Reviews
Entertainment Weekly (11/17/95, p.79) - "Jones' `joint' is a big, clean house where bop begets rap begets soul, and all-stars like Bono, Stevie Wonder, and Ray Charles are bathed in swirly, studio-crafty splendor..." - Rating: B

Down Beat (2/96, p.43) - 3.5 Stars (out of 5) - "...an entertaining pop album that abounds with joyous feeling....there are several dozen singers and musicians....Yet everyone finds his or her place, stomping the grooves, sweetening the harmonies, swinging hard or just coolin' out..."

Musician (1/96, p.95) - "...What makes this album work isn't who Q puts on the guest list, but what he does when they turn up....he's hardly repeating himself, as the hyper-energized `Stomp' and the sultry `Is It Love That We're Missing' make plain."

NME (Magazine) (12/16/95, p.37) - 7 (out of 10) - "...tailor-made for star-spotters, ever ready to strain an ear in search of their favourite zillionaire....you can't really have this much quality on board and not occasionally sound sublime."
