American Academy of Achievement : By 1956, Quincy Jones was performing as a trumpeter and music director with the Dizzy Gillespie band on a State Department-sponsored tour of the Middle East and South America. Shortly after his return, he recorded his first albums as a bandleader in his own right for ABC Paramount Records.

S p a c e A g e P o p M u s i c : After returning to the U.S. in late 1960, Jones abandoned playing the trumpet entirely during this time, and eventually delegated most arranging duties to colleagues like Billy Byers and Ernie Wilkins, limiting his involvement in his own albums of instrumentals to selection of tunes and conducting.
