Q: Soul Bossa Nostra is a 2010 studio album by Quincy Jones, recorded with various artists.[3] The album was released on November 9, 2010.[4] The title of the album refers to Jones' 1962 instrumental track "Soul Bossa Nova".


Recorded as a tribute to Jones, and featuring re-interpretations of songs associated with him, it is Jones' first original album since 1995's Q's Jook Joint. Jones serves as executive producer.[3] Regarding the forthcoming album Jones stated, "Each artist picked a song that resonated with them for different reasons.
