Summary, etc.:
A look at the life of Quincy Jones-- from the tough streets of Chicago to New York City to Europe where he performed as a trumpet player, working with such greats as Lionel Hampton and Ray Charles. Over the years, Jones worked as an arranger and composer with legends such as Frank Sinatra. He nurtured talent like Michael Jackson and produced the biggest selling album of all time, "Thriller," and the number one selling single, "We Are The World." But his dedication had its price: Jones almost died when he had to undergo surgery for two brain aneurysms. Jones says his love of his work also disrupted his family life. He has been married and divorced three times. Now, Jones plans to take it easy-- spend more time with his seven children and to give back to the family that has loved him and supported him all of these years.
