by Quincy Jones

Title Details

Abridged Edition
Running Time
6 Hrs. 30 Min.


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:
