About the Author:

Quincy Jones is an American record producer, conductor, arranger, film composer, television producer, and trumpeter. He lives in Los Angeles.

From The Washington Post:

From The Washington Post's Book World/washingtonpost.com The Complete Quincy Jones By Quincy Jones. Insight Editions. 141 pp. $45 Born in Chicago in 1933, Quincy Delight Jones, Jr., was one of eight children. After moving to Seattle with his father when he was 10, he learned to sing and play the piano and alto sax. When big bands started coming through town -- Count Basie, Woody Herman, Duke Ellington -- he was there. "This is where I want to live for the rest of my life," he decided. "And I want to be an arranger and composer." As this book -- a cornucopia of memorabilia -- demonstrates, he did all that and then some. Throughout his dazzling career, Jones conducted and arranged music for Frank Sinatra and Count Basie; produced Lesley Gore's It's My Party, Michael Jackson's Thriller and USA for Africa's We Are the World; and composed music for The Bill Cosby Show and Roots and the movies In Cold Blood and The Color Purple. He influenced not only the entire music industry, but film, television, philanthropy and social activism. As Clint Eastwood says in his foreword, "The legacy he'll leave to the world is genuinely tremendous."
