Netflix recently acquired the documentary, Quincy, which is set to showcase the life of music mogul, Quincy Jones.
The film will be directed by Alan Hicks and his Jones’ daughter, Rashida Jones and it’ll show how impactful he was in the music industry over the last couple decades.
“The sheer breadth of his work alone is unparalleled, but the story of him as a man has never been comprehensively told. It was a privilege to have his trust, allowing us to capture intimate moments giving insight into the fabric of the man.” Hicks said.
Jones quickly became a force in the industry by working with the likes of Ray Charles, Michael Jackson, Frank Sinatra, Oprah Winfrey and Will Smith. His catalog of work ultimately led him to win multiple Grammy, Emmy, Oscar and Tony Awards, and to be inducted into the Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame in 2013.
The documentary is set to be released on Netflix September 21.
🚨SPECIAL announcement from me & my UNBELIEVABLY TALENTED daud @rashidajones ((:0))🚨 When I was just a kid living on the Southside of Chicago during the Great Depression in the 30s, my grandmother used to cook rats for my little brother & I, because that’s all we had to eat…Unfortunately, the only role models I had around me were gangsters, & the only future I had in store, was that of a typical statistic without a mother…I never thought I’d see a day past age 25, & I sure didn’t think that one day I’d have 7 incredible rugrats or 79 Grammy nominations or have produced the best-selling album of all time…But here I am…85 years YOUNG & counting \(^o^)/. It’s never easy to share the most vulnerable parts of your life, but man, when you’ve had as many run-ins with death as I have, you learn to keep getting back up. Well, it’s an HONOR to let y’awl in to my life story…& it absolutely makes my soul smile to announce that one of my dauds, Rashida (& bro from another mo, Alan Hicks – @alanhicksfilms), directed QUINCY, the definitive documentary about my journey, &…it’s coming to @netflix on SEPTEMBER 21st, 2018!! ((:0)) I’m beyond honored to have my daughter tell y’awl my story because U know she DON’T PLAY & even more importantly…she tells the truth (thank-Q honey…I LOVE U). It’s been one hell of a ride, but my only hope is that you’ll learn from my mistakes, honor your gifts, & be inspired to keep reachin’ even when it seems absolutely impossible…xxoo…q
