Can’t wait for you to find out more about his truly unique and iconic life. QUINCY is screening at @tiff_net starting September 9, and premieres on @netflix September 21.

Thinking back to the moment when we were on the set of "The Wiz" & I told you I'd like to take a shot at producing your new record...never in my wildest dreams would I have thought that "Off the Wall", "Thriller", "Bad", & some of my greatest memories would've been the outcome. Even though you may not be here to celebrate with us, we are still celebrating you! Miss you with all of my heart, Smelly...I'll save U a piece of cake! Happy birthday!!...xxoo

I've always loved how a picture can capture not only a single moment in time, ‪but the stories & memories associated with it. These photos were taken during soundcheck at the Shrine Auditorium in LA for‬ the 1st Annual World Jazz Association Concert back in 1975. This was ‪right around my "Mellow Madness" era, not long after I recovered from my two aneurysms. I'll never forget the feeling of gratitude that I felt…Simply being alive & living out my second chance to view the world in a new light, was & is a gift. Veryl Oakland took this photo, ‬& it was a full circle moment for me to write the foreword to his brand new book, Jazz In Available Light...home to the pictures & stories of my past, as well as some of my best friends (the ultimate jazz cats who paved the way). Flipping through his book sure took me down memory lane, but it was beautiful to pay a visit to the great Dizzy Gillespie, Count Basie, Toots, & every other beautiful soul who is remembered within the pages of his book. ‪As I said in the foreword, his work is a timeless treasure that serves as a window into the past to illuminate our future, both musically & culturally; it's a truly invaluable work that features some of our most revered music icons, from their strongest to their most vulnerable states as human beings. Big time love & props to U my brother Veryl!! Thank-Q for giving us the gift of your art & congratulations on the release!
