American Masters

Quincy Jones: in the Pocket (#1504)

AMERICAN MASTERS presents this portrait of Quincy Jones, the composer, arranger and consummate entertainer who has won an unprecedented Grammy, Oscar and Emmy. As a master inventor of musical hybrids, "Q" has shuffled pop, soul, hip-hop, jazz, classical, African and Brazilian music into dazzling fusions, traversing virtually every medium -- records, live performance, movies and television. Celebrating his more than 50 years of music, AMERICAN MASTERS visits his past -- the albums and Grammys, the movies and music videos, the productions and collaborations, the scores of the rich and famous who owe part of their ascent to his remarkable vision -- and races to keep up with his future.
