This week on the Seven O'Clock Sample, we explore the music of one of the greatest producers of all time!
During five decades in the entertainment industry, Jones has earned a record 79 Grammy Award nominations, 27 Grammys,including a Grammy Legend Award in 1991. Quincy was also the first black American to win an Academy Award for best musical film score. His work in Jazz, R&B, Hip Hop, Film, Television and Theatre is nothing short of amazing!
With such a large body of work, Quincy has been sampled numerous times. One of his most popular samples, is not from one of his most popular songs...
