We gave it a B

Quincy 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. Q’s Jook Joint is a gentle, wild ride, from the bebop phraseology of ”Moody’s Mood for Love” to the pop-funk of ”Rock With You” to the sultry simu-love closure of ”Grace.”
