Q’s Jook Joint was Quincy Jones’ fourth concept album in a quartet (with Body Heat, The Dude and Back On The Block).
The concept is based on the juke joints that served as makeshift nightclubs in the South. Quincy establishes his own juke joint in track 1, with Ray’s Let The Good Times Roll (Bono and Stevie supporting).
In 1959 Quincy had penned the chart for the first studio recording (for the album The Genius Of Ray Charles, 1960). Q’s Jook Joint also has a 0’56” track: Let The Good Times Roll (Reprise), with Quincy and Funkmaster Flex. Ray also contributed to this album’s version of Stuff Like That.
