Recorded at the Van Gelder Studios in late 1960, Genius + Soul = Jazz was one of the first four albums released on the Impulse! label. It was produced by Creed Taylor and includes hard-blowing arrangements by Quincy Jones and Ralph Burns. Charles switched from his usual electric piano to a “churchy” sounding Hammond organ and brought in the majority of Count Basie’s band including trumpeters Thad Jones and Joe Newman, tenor saxophonists Billy Mitchell and Frank Wess, guitarist Freddie Green and drummer Sonny Payne.
