A new Rashida Jones-directed documentary following the life of legendary producer Quincy Jones is set to head to Netflix this September.
Quincy will be a career-spanning look at one of the biggest names in the industry, following his days as a trumpeter, film composer, jazz conductor, and producer.
“It’s rare that somebody who has lived as much life as my dad is still interested in growing and knowing the next generation,” Rashida Jones said in a statement.
“He is such a man of action and accomplishments, but we were so lucky to spend real time with him, to let him reflect on life and the larger picture. I feel honored to be able to share that with audiences all over the world.”
Jones is the most nominated person in Grammy’s history – with 79 noms and 27 wins – and is most known for his work on Michael Jackson’s Thriller.
Co-director Alan Hicks added: “There is really no one like Quincy, the sheer breadth of his work alone is unparalleled, but the story of him as a man has never been comprehensively told. It was a privilege to have his trust, allowing us to capture intimate moments giving insight into the fabric of the man.”
Quincy will be released on September 21st.
