Quincy Jones, the legendary music producer, arranger, conductor, record producer and 27-time Grammy winner, is back with his first album in five years. “Q: Soul Bossa Nostra” was recorded as a tribute to Jones and includes reinterpretations of songs associated with him. The new CD features an impressive guest list, combining the talents of some of the top R&B and Hip Hop artists performing today including Usher, Mary J. Blige, John Legend, Snoop Dogg, Ludacris, and many others. Record-man prestige is dwindling these days, but Quincy still commands respect.

Guest:

Quincy Jones, Grammy-winning composer, arranger, conductor, instrumentalist, record producer & executive; Executive Producer of “Q: Soul Bossa Nostra”
