Quincy Jones 


Big time love & props to my brother #FranckBouroullec for creating this absolutely beautiful painting for the Montreux Palace at the @montreuxjazzfestival...You are an absolutely profound professional! Missing this place already...((:0))

I'd like to take a moment to celebrate these individuals...the new & expansive ways they are all lighting up the world—from music, to art, & beyond. Each & every one of them is proof that you don't have to wait until someone presents you with an opportunity...We all play an active role in shaping our culture whether we realize it or not. I truly believe it’s up to you to choose what legacy you’ll leave.

What. A. NIGHT!! #Jazzopen Stuttgart, you were absolutely on fire!! ((:0)) I am so honored to have been there with you all, & I want to thank you from the bottom of my ❤️ for showing me as much love as you did in this moment (& throughout the entire concert)! Y'awl were some of the loudest I've ever heard & I loved every minute of it!! Special thanks to my friends George Benson, @jcolliermusic, @deedeebridgewater, @julesbuckleymusic, & the #SWRBigBand for joining me & making this a day I will never forget...Let's do it again soon!!

We just finished rehearsing our set for @jazzopen_stuttgart tomorrow & maaan it is SWINGIN! This is the very FIRST time George Benson & I are performing "Give Me the Night" with a live orchestra...Its been a long time coming since we did the recording back in '80 ((:0)) We've also got @deedeebridgewater, @jcolliermusic, @julesbuckleymusic, & the #SWRbigBand...the absolute top of the TOP! I hope it gives you as many chills as it gave me just now!! Link in bio

I’ve spent my career reaching backwards and looking forwards...paying tribute to the teachers and visionaries who came before me, while making something new that might inspire another generation of creators. @yunamusic embodies that commitment with her own forward-reaching sound, while paying respect to her influences, and I absolutely love that about her. We had a great time at the launch of my JBL E55BT Quincy Edition Headphones, chatting about some of our favorite young musicians that keep us excited for the future! Keep on keepin' on gurl!

It makes my soul smile to personally announce, along with my partner Reza Ackbaraly, the unveiling of Qwest TV: the world's first subscription video on demand (SVOD) source for jazz & eclectic music from around the world! The name "Qwest" has been with me since the beginning (i.e. my label Qwest Records) & I can confidently say that it hasn't lost a single drop of its meaning...Life is a journey, & I hear people say that jazz has a special power to take us down the side streets of life, but for me, it had the power to take me OUT of the streets...So, I'm excited for this platform to allow you to experience it all for yourself!! Check. It. Out! Link in bio 👆🏾@qwest.tv

I didn't think Montreux could get any better...but then I discovered sorbet...\(^o^)/

Even back in my bebop days, I was collaborating with artists who were not just musicians, but also stylists...performers who set out to not only make music, but also look the part every day. Man, the bebop dudes created style! Whether it was their clothes or the slang that they used, they had STYLE! I had a beautiful time getting to sit down with @melodyehsani to talk about how style ties into the creation process of ANY type of art. You gotta have it both!! It's a relationship!...Thanks for doing the hang-thang with me at the release of my new @jblaudio E55BT Quincy Edition Headphones. You are IT! #jblxquincy

So excited to have my little bros, @jcolliermusic & @jonahnilsson, finally here with me in Montreux!! Tonight's going to be a PARTAY...Montreux Jazz Club at 12:30AM...\(^o^)/...C U there...it's FREE ((:0)) #mjf2017

True friendship stands the test of time...58 years and counting...we're just gettin' started!! ((:0)) @herbiehancockofficial

My mentor, Nadia Boulanger, once told me that your music can never be more or less than you are as a person, and my babies, @chloexhalle, are quite the individuals! These two young artists put that truth on display every day, and I’m so grateful that they were able to join me at the launch of my @jblaudio E55BT Quincy Edition Headphones. We had such a blast and maaan can they sing!! ((:0)) #jblxquincy

Man, these cats killed it last night at @montreuxjazzfestival! @theroots sure know how to JAM!!...Can't wait to see yawl do it all over again with my little bro @usher tonight 🙌🏾 #mjf2017
