Publisher Comments:

Everything you love about American popular culture is Quincy Jones. As an artist and impresario Quincy Jones has been the creative catalyst for over 50 years of American cultural phenomena orchestrating the sounds of Frank Sinatra, setting the ambiance for Steven Spielberg, cultivating the talent of Michael Jackson, and introducing the world Oprah Winfrey and Will Smith--to name a few. The Complete Quincy Jones examines the diverse virtuosity of Quincy Jones, celebrating his prolific contribution to American art and culture. Comprised of personal interviews and recollections with Jones, this collection peers behind the veil of

celebrity, with extraordinary access to his creative inspirations and labors. Through private notebooks, correspondence, and photographs Jones offers unprecedented introspection into the depths of his creativity and the histories of his ventures. From the volumes of his memorabilia, Jones emerges as a contemplative and dynamic maestro, thriving on intuition and ceaselessly pursuing the soul of his art.

About the Author

Quincy Delight Jones, Jr., known to his friends as "Q," is the most prolific individual music producer and creative force in American popular culture. He is the visionary behind Thriller and Michael Jackson's solo career, the compositional master of more than 33 film scores, the patron producer of Oprah Winfrey and Will Smith, the founder and CEO of Qwest Records and Broadcasting, a platinum selling musician, and the all time Grammy nominee. As a paragon humanitarian he was the major supporter of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.'s Operation Breadbasket, a founding member of the Institute for Black American Music and the Black Arts Festival, and is creator of the Quincy Jones Listen Up Foundation, which works to build homes in Africa and educate children in global conflict zones. Jones currently resides in Los Angeles and at the age of 74 works tirelessly as a versatile performer, producer, philanthropist, and impresario. Quincy Jones' talents are legendary, his compassion universal, and his life too much for words.
