Kirk Degiorgio compiles the finest tracks from the legendary producer, featuring Aretha Franklin, Chaka Khan, Michael Jackson and many more.

Spend the next two hours focusing on the amazing, unique brilliance of Mr. Quincy Jones. We travel back to his 1960s productions for musicians like jazz singer and pianist Shirley Horn and trumpet icon and composer Dizzy Gillespie, then move through the ’70s where Q assembled albums for Aretha Franklin and the Brothers Johnson, among many others. Then we step into the ’80s for his legendary productions for Michael Jackson, George Benson and Rufus and Chaka Khan, as well as albums from Patti Austin and James Ingram on his own Quest label. Sit back, relax and tune in to the genius that is Quincy Jones.
