Quincy Jones

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Quincy Delight Jones, Jr. (born March 14, 1933) is an American record producer, conductor, arranger, composer, television producer, film producer, instrumentalist, magazine founder, record company executive, humanitarian, and jazz trumpeter.[2] His career spans six decades in the entertainment industry and a record 79 Grammy Award nominations,[3] 27 Grammys,[3] including a Grammy Legend Award in 1991.

In 1968, Jones and his songwriting partner Bob Russell became the first African Americans to be nominated for an Academy Award for Best Original Song, their "The Eyes of Love" for the Universal Pictures film Banning. That same year, Jones was the first African American to be nominated twice within the same year for an Academy Award for Best Original Score, as he was also nominated for his work on the film In Cold Blood (1967). In 1971, Jones was the first African American to be named as the musical director and conductor of the Academy Awards ceremony. In 1995 he was the first African American to receive the Academy's Jean Hersholt Humanitarian Award. He is tied with sound designer Willie D. Burton as the African American who has been nominated for the most Oscars; each has received seven nominations.

Jones was the producer, with Michael Jackson, of Jackson's albums Off the Wall (1979), Thriller (1982), and Bad (1987), as well as being the producer and conductor of the 1985 charity song "We Are the World".

In 2013 Jones was inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame as the winner, alongside Lou Adler, of the Ahmet Ertegun Award.[4] Among his awards, Jones was named by Time Magazine as one of the most influential jazz musicians of the 20th century.[2]

Quincy Jones' Best Stories About Working With MJ, Sinatra and Ray

Quincy Jones, now 81 years old, has been not just an eyewitness to the evolution of 20th century music but one of its biggest players. He started as a jazz trumpeter and an arranger, and went on to be a bandleader, a film composer and a producer. Along the way, he worked with Ray Charles, Count Basie, Aretha Franklin, Frank Sinatra, Billie Holiday, Paul Simon and Michael Jackson, to name a few. He produced the world's best-selling album (Michael Jackson's Thriller) and the all-star charity single "We Are the World." He's been nominated for 79 Grammys, winning 27 of them. His seven children include actress Rashida Jones: "She's a sweet little thing, so smart," he brags.

The 50 Best Michael Jackson Songs

Jones is featured in the forthcoming documentary Distortion of Sound, about how digital compression has compromised the music that we all hear today. We caught up with him in Los Angeles for a conversation about technology and his career.

Have you seen technology change music?
Yeah, that's what changes the world. I remember when Baryshnikov first came to New York in the Sixties. I asked him, "Mikhail, how the hell did you have the guts to pull out of Russia in those days?" He said, "Quincy, very simple – television. I saw Roland Petit at the Parisian Ballet, I saw ABT in NY, and I said, 'I can do that too.'" When I look back at my own lifetime, the things I saw change the most was jet planes and television. And then we got into faxes and satellites and email, and it was over, man. The Arab Spring couldn't have happened without e-mail.

How often do you play trumpet these days?
I can never play it again – I'd die. Dizzy [Gillespie] gave me his original horn, and I can't touch it. I had a brain operation: aneurysms. I have this clip in my brain. I got letters in five languages saying I can't go through anything magnetic. Given the alternative, it's an easy choice.

What did you learn from Ray Charles?
Well, everything. We met when I was 14 years old and he was 17. He used to teach me stuff in braille. He sang back then, like Nat Cole and Charles Brown, and he played alto like Charlie Parker. There was a lot of racism going on in the Forties, but every day we used to say to the world, "Not one drop of my self-worth depends on your opinion of me."

Frank Sinatra gave you your "Q" nickname?
I was living in France and one day they said, "Grace Kelly's office called, and Mr. Sinatra wants you to bring a 55-piece orchestra down to Monte Carlo for a benefit." We took a train down and at the end of the show, he said, "Great job, kid, koo-koo." I didn't hear from him for four years and then he called me and said, "Hey, Q, this is Francis, I'm in Hawaii directing a film called None But the Brave. I heard the record you did last year with Basie." It was a waltz – I did it in 4/4 with Basie so it would swing. He said, "That's the way I like to do it too. Would you consider doing an album with Basie and me?" I said hell to the yeah, went over to Hawaii, and I didn't leave Frank until he left earth.

Do you have a memory of Michael Jackson as a musician?
We started to work on The Wiz when he was about 19. He said, "I need a producer for my album," seeing if I had a personal interest in working with him. I said, "Michael, I don't want to talk about nothing but the film." But I was trying to find things that he hadn't done before. I had this song "She's Out of My Life" that Tommy Bahler wrote when his wife left him. I was saving that for Sinatra, but I said, "I want to try this with Michael, 'cause he's never had a real life experience, a genuine relationship with a woman." I saw him at the Oscars one year – he was doing "Ben," this romantic love story to a rat! So I gave the song to him, and every time we recorded it, he cried.

Quincy Jones: Triumphant Over Brain Trauma

Celebrating more than 50 years performing and being involved in music, producer, composer and writer Quincy Jones’ creative magic has spanned over six decades. He’s also the most Grammy-nominated artist in history, with 79 nominations and 27 wins. But even with all the accolades, Quincy has had his fair share of health issues, including a brain aneurysm in 1974 that required two operations that left six steel pins in his head.

“I actually had two brain aneurysms,” explains Jones. “So I guess I would classify as having some experience with trauma to the brain. Also, my mother suffered from mental illness. She was a brilliant woman who spoke several languages and had degrees from several colleges, but she had this condition that debilitated her, which today could’ve been controlled with medication. But at the time, during the Depression, they simply would commit you.”

Jones also suffered from depression in the mid 1980s that led him to have a nervous breakdown, all of which he turned to music to assist in his healing process. “I am curious about everything, man. But particularly how music affects the mind, body and soul, which I know it does,” says Jones. “Music is the only art form that can evoke a visceral and spiritual emotion in a person.”

Brain Aneurysm Facts You Need To Know:
Unruptured brain aneurysms are typically completely asymptomatic. These aneurysms are typically small in size, usually less than one half inch in diameter. However, large unruptured aneurysms can occasionally press on the brain or the nerves stemming out of the brain and may result in various neurological symptoms. Any individual experiencing some or all of the following symptoms, regardless of age, should undergo immediate and careful evaluation by a physician.

  • Localized headache
  • Dilated pupils
  • Blurred or double vision
  • Pain above and behind eyes
  • Weakness and numbness
  • Difficulty speaking

Nowadays, Jones is doing more than many artists half his age. He’s producing a half-dozen albums, including composer/pianist Emily Bear and singer Nikki Yanofsky, as well as trumpeter Clark Terry and rapper Snoop Dogg.

When asked about his health, Jones radiantly shares, “I’ve never been happier. I party. I got a master’s degree in that.”
