Meet 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.
