A Quincy Jones documentary is coming to Netflix

Netflix 02/08/2018

A documentary about Quincy Jones, Quincy, will make its debut on Netflix on 21st September.

The documentary is co-directed by the producer's daughter, Rashida Jones, who is well known for her portrayal of Ann Perkins on NBC's comedy series, Parks and Recreation.

The documentary will look at Quincy Jones' career spanning over six decades in the music industry, from his time as a trumpeter, film composer and jazz conductor to his famous production work on Michael Jackson's 1982 album Thriller and his Rock and Roll Hall of Fame induction.

Rashida Jones stated that it was rare to have someone who has lived as much life as her father to still be interested in understanding the next generation and helping them grow. She continues to say, “He is such a man of action and accomplishments, but we were so lucky to spend real time with him, to let him reflect on life and the larger picture. I feel honoured to be able to share that with audiences all over the world.”

Co-director Alan Hicks compliments Quincy as one of a kind, indicating that the "sheer breadth of his work alone is unparalleled" but the world has yet to hear the full story of him. 

It was a privilege to have his trust, allowing us to capture intimate moments giving insight into the fabric of the man.

Quincy Jones has over 79 nominations and 27 wins, making him the most-nominated person and second-most winner in Grammy history. On top of his work with Michael Jackson, he has worked with various famous artists like Frank Sinatra, Ray Charles, Lesley Gore and Ophrah Winfrey.
