Q

Watched the first part of a two-parter on Quincy Jones that was originally broadcast on BBC4 last Friday. What a CV this guy has! From trumpet player with Lionel Hampton to arranger, composer and record producer for everyone from Frank Sinatra to Michael Jackson and beyond Q, as Sinatra christened him, stands alongside the greats, not just in jazz, but in music full stop.
The second part is on this coming Friday (20 June) again on BBC4. Don't miss it.
If you do miss it, pick up his autobiography entitled, surprise, surprise; "Q".

Great program - I'd like to see them do one on Creed Taylor - no relation!
