Quincy Jones - A true music legend.

❤️ Quincy Jones ❤️
This man is a giant among men and creative genius! His mama sure knew what she was doing when she named him ‘DELIGHT’, because bwoy has he delighted us over the years! 

I watched the Quincy Jones documentary on the ‘Flix last week and I was just blown away by this legend of the music industry. Honestly, it is a must watch. This short piece cannot do justice to this man’s achievements (in music).

If you didn’t already know, he is a producer, musician, composer, and film producer. His career spans six decades in the entertainment industry with a record 80 Grammy Award nominations!!!! The highest ever... and 28 Grammy wins. Beyoncé ... girl you still got ‘work work work work’ to do!

He is also (one of two of) the second most Oscar-nominated African-Americans, with seven nominations.

Ever heard of a guy called Michael Jackson? Well... Quincy basically launched MJ’s solo career ... He was the producer, with Michael Jackson, of Jackson's albums Off the Wall (1979), Thriller (1982), and Bad (1987). Nuff said!

This guy is RESPECTED!! And rightly so; he truly is a living legend. He turned 86 years old last Thursday 14th (March), and he still continues to DELIGHT us... and long may he do so.

Happy belated birthday Quincy Jones ❤️😘
