Quincy Jones:THE INTERVIEW
« on: February 08, 2018, 08:56:05 pm »
I heard the controversial quotes and had to read the entire interview.

The impression I got was one of a master seeking to give his last manifesto on all the things he feels are important. I know there are 2 special projects dedicated to Jones next month but I really felt like this was a "FINAL" interview from the icon.

It really felt like a man felt no need to hold back on anything.

The Motown Mythos has really taken a hit this millennium.

With this comment about perennial sex symbol Marvin Gaye and an "Interaction" with Marlon Brando it is yet another crack in what was an untouchable force-field around the Motown legends. Prior to these revelations we were meant to envision these artists as people who only woke up, practiced, produced, performed and went back to bed. Now, the frailties are being exposed on almost a weekly basis.

I still hope he puts out another album of new material.  jazz, funk, soul, etc.

I wish he was able to convince Michael and Prince to work together on an album.

His autobiography had a lot of great stories.  Recommended.

Read one story in one of his autobiographical books as far back as 2001 where he reveals that when he was younger, his family was so poor, he would eat a rat to survive.
