It Might as Well Be Spring is an album by American saxophonist Ike Quebec recorded in 1961 and released on the Blue Note label. In many ways, the record is a companion piece to Heavy Soul.

Label: Blue Note (0946 3 62652 2 3) Working with the same quartet that cut Heavy Soul - organist Freddie Roach, bassist Milt Hinton and drummer Al Harewood - Ike Quebec recorded another winning hard bop album with It Might As Well Be Spring. Since the two albums were recorded so close together, it's not surprising that there a number of stylistic similarities, but there are subtle differences to savor. Ike Quebec - It Might As Well Be Spring (1964). Date: 21 Feb 2019 11:39:56.

None of Ike Quebec's 1961-62 Blue Note albums should be missed, and this lush offering - second of the five - is a fine case in point. The venerable tenor saxophonist blows half a dozen moody and memorable statements on IT MIGHT AS WELL BE SPRING, two of them his own compositions, with consistently fine help from Freddie Roach on mile-wide organ, Milt Hinton on bass and Al Harewood at the drum kit. Ike's patented slow and smooth ambience is well in evidence, and it's a joy to hear it created in such sympathetic company.

Rodgers, Rodgers: State Fair - It Might As Well Be Spring, Hurry, It's Lovely Up Here. In 1961, the song was a hit for Frank Sinatra on his album Sinatra and Strings, and Ella Fitzgerald also recorded it on her live Verve release: Ella in Hollywood. Andy Williams released a version on his 1962 album: Moon River and Other Great Movie Themes. Miss Peggy Lee sang a swinging version of the song on her 1967 album titled "Something Groovy".
