Quincy Jones
Producer; Composer; CEO, Quincy Jones Music Publishing

Quincy Jones is a prolific composer, arranger and conductor; film, television and record producer; record company executive; television station owner; magazine founder; and humanitarian. He has received an Emmy, seven Academy Award nominations, the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences' Jean Hersholt Humanitarian Award and 27 Grammys. Jones is a recipient of France's Commandeur de la Legion d' Honneur and a Kennedy Center Honoree. The National Endowment for the Arts has recognized him as a Jazz Master, the nation's highest jazz honor. Q: The Autobiography of Quincy Jones (2001) recounts his career and work beside such legends as Billie Holiday, Ray Charles, Dizzy Gillespie and Ella Fitzgerald. In 1999, Jones joined Bono and Bob Geldof to meet with Pope John Paul II as part of the Jubilee 2000 delegation to end Third World debt. The delegation's visit resulted in $27 billion of that debt being relieved. His Project Q foundation, an initiative with the Harvard School of Public Health, works with NGOs to improve the well-being of children in developing countries.
