Official Trailer for Netflix's Doc 'Quincy' on Music Legend Quincy Jones
"I'm a survivor - my whole life has been like that." Netflix has revealed an official trailer for a documentary titled Quincy, an inside look at the life and achievements of entertainment producer and the music legend Quincy Jones. "A unique force of nature in music and popular culture for 70 years, Jones has transcended musical and racial boundaries; his story is inextricably woven into the fabric of Black America. Beyond his own acclaim as a trumpeter, producer, conductor, composer and arranger, Jones's inimitable gift to discover the biggest talents of the past half of the century is unprecedented. He has mentored and cultivated the careers of young talents, from Lesley Gore and Michael Jackson to Oprah Winfrey and Will Smith. With his boundless energy, Jones has also awakened many generations to the significance of humanitarian issues." This looks like a wonderful and exciting look at the legend, and it will be available to watch later this month.

Without Q, Michael Jackson would've never been as popular. I'll never forgive him for that...

The man was part of the reinvention of the jazz scene. Reinvented himself with dope compositions such as the theme from Sanford and Son, Ironside and The Bill Cosby Show. Scored The Italian Job....The Wiz ...and Produced and scored the Color Purple. THEN the Michael Jackson Trilogy of albums. The man is quite simply a legend. (And gets props for being half responsible for fine ass Rashida Jones.)

I never listened too much of his music. But I guess, he managed to have a nice career...

Looks like a solid documentary. Gotta be honest, I've always heard the name, never knew what he was responsible for...and know I know the answer to that is: A LOT!
