This entertaining, heavily illustrated tribute to the unparalleled career of musician, composer, arranger, and producer Quincy Jones explores his wide-ranging virtuosity and his prolific contribution to American art and culture. Presented in the form of a scrapbook, it is filled with photographs of celebrities from Frank Sinatra to Michael Jackson, Oprah Winfrey to Desmond Tutu, as well as removable elements of ephemera and memorabilia-like reproductions of music cue sheets, album covers, and correspondence.

"Throughout his dazzling career, Jones conducted and arranged music for Frank Sinatra and Count Basie; produced Lesley Gore's 'It's My Party,' Michael Jackson's Thriller, and USA for Africa's 'We Are the World'; and composed music for The Bill Cosby Show and Roots and the movies In Cold Blood and The Color Purple. He influenced not only the entire music industry, but film, television, philanthropy and social activism. As Clint Eastwood says in his foreword, 'The legacy he'll leave to the world is genuinely tremendous'."Washington Post
