Netflix has released the official trailer for the upcoming documentary QUINCY. The film chronicles the life and career of entertainment icon – Quincy Jones.

 

Beyond his own acclaim as a trumpeter, producer, conductor, composer and arranger, Jones’ inimitable gift to discover the biggest talents of the past half century is unprecedented. He has shaped the pop culture landscape for 70 years, mentoring and cultivating the careers of young talents, from Lesley Gore and Michael Jackson to Oprah Winfrey and Will Smith.

 

Directed by his daughter –  Rashida Jones and Alan Hicks, QUINCY seamlessly threads personal vérité moments with private archival footage to reveal a legendary life like no other. It also features the all-new original song “Keep Reachin'” by Jones, Mark Ronson and Chaka Khan.

 

QUINCY debuts on Friday, September 21 on Netflix.
