Quincy Jones has shared the trailer for Quincy, a new documentary which spans the legendary producer’s six decades in music.
Jones, 85, has achieved an unprecedented 79 Grammy Award nominations and won 27 Grammys, including a Grammy Legend Award in 1991. He’s worked with Aretha Franklin, Stevie Wonder, Ray Charles, Frank Sinatra, Michael Jackson and Miles Davis, among others. He is also responsible for some of the most well-known film scores, including The Color Purple, The Italian Job and In Cold Blood.

The highly-anticipated film was directed by filmmaker Alan Hicks and Quincy Jones’ daughter, Rashida Jones. The producer wrote on Facebook that “it makes my soul SMILE to have such a dream team share my story”.
You can watch behind-the-scenes studio footage from the making of that song below.
Producers describe the film as awarding “an intimate look into the life of icon Quincy Jones” and Jones as having “transcended racial and cultural boundaries – his story is inextricably woven into the fabric of America.”
Curiously, the trailer doesn’t mention his stellar work with Michael Jackson on his groundbreaking albums Off The Wall, Bad, and Thriller, which remains the best-selling record of all time.
Quincy will debut on Netflix on September 21.
