On Smackwater Jack, Quincy rolled all those influences together and produced an album with a mix of 70s and 60s sensibilities. Seventies because of the multi-sectioned art pop arrangements that mirror the progressive rock and RnB of that era and the very modern funk and RnB beats that drive the solo sections. The album mirrors the 60s in its glitzy big band arrangements and Quincy’s ongoing sense of 60s suburban kitsch hipness of the Johnny / era. Smackwater Jack is basically a big band album disguised as a pop album

Album Smackwater Jack. Smackwater Jack Lyrics. Now, Smackwater Jack He bought a shotgun 'Cause he was in the mood For a little confrontation He just a-let it all hang loose; He didn't think about the noose He couldn't take no more abuse So he shot down the congregation. You can't talk to a man With a shotgun in his hand.

Smackwater Jack" is one of the most enjoyable of Quincy Jones's many albums, offering a kaleidoscope of styles and moods, and performances by top jazz and session musicians. The Japanese SHM-CD release being discussed here offers clear, full-bodied sound, and the charm of duplicating, as much as possible, the look and feel of the 1971 vinyl LP release, down to the tan A&M label on the CD. The effect of all this evident care is spoiled by the very first track on the disc, which is not the same as that found on the original album release. Like most of the albums that Quincy Jones released in the 1970s, the song selection on this album represents a mixed bag of musical styles. Very hard to classify it all, but very easy to enjoy such well-played and produced music.
