Named by Time Magazine as one of the most influential jazz musicians of the 20th Century, Quincy Jones is an icon in the broadest and most creative sense of the word. His career has encompassed the roles of composer, artist, arranger, conductor, instrumentalist, record company executive, magazine founder, multi-media entrepreneur, humanitarian, investor, and record, film, and TV producer. As a master inventor of musical hybrids, he has shuffled pop, soul, hip-hop, jazz, classical, African, and Brazilian music into many dazzling fusions, traversing virtually every medium, including records, live performance, movies, and television.
The iconic Quincy Jones will return to the UK this year, for a concert that will pay tribute to his unparalleled career, in celebration of his 85th birthday year. He will stop at The O2 on Wednesday 27 June 2018.
