One of the men responsible for the best-selling album of all time (Thriller) turns 80 today. We’re honoring the legendary Quincy Jones by taking a look at his legacy in the music industry over the years.
Fitting all of Mr. Jones’s accomplishments into one document would be nearly impossible. This is the man who produced MJ‘s Thriller. A man who has more Grammys than any living musician. Quincy executive produced the one of the most watched award shows, the 68th Annual Academy Awards. Everyone from Frank Sinatra to Ella Fitzgerald to Billie Holiday to Robin Thicke to Usher have requested his brilliance on their own projects. His accomplishments are unrivaled. The indelible imprint he’s left on the music business will be felt for years to come. Happy 80th Birthday Quincy Jones!
