Walking in Space is a 1969 studio album by Quincy Jones.[2] The album was recorded for A&M and features an iconic photo of Quincy designed by Pete Turner who made some of the most famous A&M album covers. Vocalist Valerie Simpson is featured on "Walking in Space", an arrangement of a song from the hit Rock Musical Hair. "Dead End" is also from Hair and "Killer Joe" features Ray Brown on bass and Grady Tate on drums, an early example of a strong jazz rhythm section in pop music.
