Quincy Jones was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2013 as the recipient of the Ahmet Ertegun Award for Lifetime Achievement. He has had one of the longest, most successful careers in popular music. He is a record producer, conductor, arranger, film composer, television producer and trumpeter. He has worked with such artists as Michael Jackson, Lionel Hampton, Dizzy Gillespie, Ray Charles, Frank Sinatra, Marvin Gaye, Stevie Wonder, Duke Ellington and Miles Davis, to name just a few. He has been nominated for a record 79 Grammys – and won 27 – and in 1991, he received the Grammy Legend Award. The entire narrative of this documentary unfolds in a collage of interview snippets, backed by stock footage featuring Jones, Ray Charles, Miles Davis, Billy Eckstine, Ella Fitzgerald, Herbie Hancock, Michael Jackson, Frank Sinatra, and Sarah Vaughan, among many others.
