Q : The Autobiography of Quincy Jones - new book

ISBN: 0743500377

[SR: 10705377], Audio Cassette, [EAN: 9780743500371], Abridged, Audiobook, Simon & Schuster Audio, Simon & Schuster Audio, Book, [PU: Simon & Schuster Audio], Simon & Schuster Audio, Musician, composer, producer, arranger, and pioneering entrepreneur Quincy Jones has lived large and worked for five decades alongside the superstars of music and entertainment. Q is his moving life story, passion, and no-holds-barred honesty that are his trademarks. Quincy Jones grew up poor on the mean streets of Chicago's South Side, brushing against the law and feeling the pain of his mother's descent into madness. But when his father moved the family west to Seattle, he took up the trumpet and was literally saved by music. Quincy's string of unbroken triumphs in the entertainment industry has been shadowed by a turbulent paersonal life, a story he shares with eloquence and candor. Q is an impressive self-portrait by one of the master makers of American culture that features vivid testimony from key witnesses to his journey, including: Clarence Avant • Buddy Catlett • Lucy Jackson read by Rhonda Campbell • Jeri Jones • Kidada Jones • Lloyd Jones read by Marlon Jones • Quincy Jones III • Rashida Jones • Peggy Lipton • Melle Mel • Jerome Richardson read by Jimmy Cl, He reached an apogee of fame in the mid-1980s as the producer-arranger of Michael Jackson's blockbuster album Thriller and the charity single "We Are the World," but Quincy Jones has been a force in American music since he was a teenager. He swung hard enough to play with beboppers like Dizzy Gillespie; he studied composition with the legendary Nadia Boulanger; he scored dozens of films and TV shows; he arranged and/or produced albums for everyone from Frank Sinatra to Leslie Gore, and rappers like Melle Mel don't disdain the old man either. Looking back at age 68 in a good-natured autobiography supplemented with brief chapters by such friends as Ray Charles and ex-wife Peggy Lipton, Jones asserts, "I've been driven all my life by a spirit of adventure and a criminal level of optimism." Given his beginnings, growing up poor in Chicago and Seattle with a mentally ill mother lurking in the background, that's quite an achievement. Jones never stood still long enough to let sorrow catch him, and though his treatment of his personal life is standard Hollywood glib ("Though Nastassja [Kinski]'s and my relationship as a couple was not destined to last, she is a great friend"), his prose catches fire when it touches on music: Dinah Washington "could take the melody in her hand, hold it like an egg, crack it open, fry it, let it sizzle, reconstruct it, put the egg back in the box and back in the refrigerator, and you would've still understood every single syllable." His furious energy may have been fueled by personal demons, but his joyous sweep through a half century of American pop convinces you that Jones was right to keep moving: "Nothing is ever wrong if it's going someplace," he asserts. "Music is about ever-changing." --Wendy Smith , 2328, Actors & Entertainers, 2327, Arts & Literature, 2, Biographies & Memoirs, 1000, Subjects, 283155, Books, 2339, Jazz, 2331, Composers & Musicians, 2327, Arts & Literature, 2, Biographies & Memoirs, 1000, Subjects, 283155, Books, 2366, African-American & Black, 2365, Ethnic & National, 2, Biographies & Memoirs, 1000, Subjects, 283155, Books, 2420, Business, 2419, Professionals & Academics, 2, Biographies & Memoirs, 1000, Subjects, 283155, Books, 3, Business & Money, 266117, Accounting, 2538, Biography & History, 2558, Business Culture, 2581, Economics, 2732, Education & Reference, 2604, Finance, 10020683011, Human Resources, 2624, Industries, 2638, Insurance, 2657, International, 2665, Investing, 2572, Job Hunting & Careers, 2675, Management & Leadership, 2698, Marketing & Sales, 2717, Personal Finance, 355561011, Processes & Infrastructure, 2650, Real Estate, 355562011, Skills, 2741, Small Business & Entrepreneurship, 7743000011, Taxation, 355578011, Women & Business, 1000, Subjects, 283155, Books, 86, Humor & Entertainment, 11357541011, Coloring Books for Grown-Ups, 4456, Humor, 4484, Movies, 521000, Performing Arts, 4550, Pop Culture, 4402, Puzzles & Games, 4564, Radio, 1622, Sheet Music & Scores, 4569, Television, 11871, Trivia & Fun Facts, 1000, Subjects, 283155, Books
