Quincy Jones has been one of the most influential and important figures in modern music for over six decades, a true renaissance man, wearing scores of musical hats, including bandleader, solo artist, session player, songwriter, producer, arranger, composer, and record label executive. It doesn't stop there. He's also been an author, motion picture producer, and television producer, and the artists he's worked with, from Frank Sinatra to Miles Davis, Count Basie, Michael Jackson, Paul Simon, Ray Charles, Aretha Franklin, and countless others, make a truly amazing and impressive pantheon. This set collects 19 of Jones' tracks from the 1960s, '70s, and '80s, ranging from jazz and blues to R&B, pop, and funk, including the disco classic "Ai No Corrida."
