Michael Jackson's name has been taken out of Quincy Jones' show
Michael Jackson & Quincy Jones Interview 1983 RARE!!!and
Quincy Jones sat down with Vulture for another wide-spanning interview in celebration of his upcoming Netflix documentary and CBS special. The legendary producer, who turns 85 in March, talked about his appreciation of jazz, the changing nature of racism and feminism in America, and his work with Michael Jackson, who he says "stole" more than people realized. He stole a lot of songs. He was as Machiavellian as they come. Later, he explained how his work with Jackson excelled in bringing together different eras, and keeping "the ear busy," which he feels happens less in modern music. Jazz is at the top of the hierarchy of music because the musicians learned everything they could about music. I used to hang out with him.
Over more than a decade, the Revive Music brand and mission has been recognized and respected globally for genre-defying concert presentations, esteemed partnership album releases with Blue Note Records and a breakthrough editorial publication renowned for championing the growth of jazz and progressive music. Revive has cultivated and united a community of musical icons, next-generation innovators and audiences through live performances crafted to increase awareness, appreciation, and recognition for the music and the musicians who create it. The compelling energy of this signature live experience spirited the birth of Revive and will remain the root of our legacy. Our efforts to reimagine lost art by uniting icons and rising leaders with hip-hop lyricists set the stage for a phenomenal progressive movement in jazz. The notion of this hybrid synergy —— a cross-genre experimental marriage between jazz and hip-hop, is in fact, nothing new.
Quincy Jones calls Ivanka Trump "a fine motherfucker" and her father "a fucking idiot" in new wide-ranging interview. Jones gave many opinions about the music industry namely, that it no longer exists , but is optimistic about artists like Bruno Mars, Chance the Rapper, Kendrick Lamar, Sam Smith and Mark Ronson. Michael Jackson lifted music from Donna Summer. Greedy, man. Jones thought the Beatles were terrible musicians. And Ringo?

Hi, Quincy. Good to talk to you, especially considering the time where you are 1. I always am, fella. All my life. I used to write from midnight to 10 in the morning. Is it true you once had lunch with Leni Riefenstahl 1 in which she told you that most of the Third Reich leaders were addicted to cocaine? Not most — all of them!
Jermaine Jackson addressed Jones directly during the interview. Keep it as what it always been and what it represents — excellence at the highest level. My brother is innocent on all charges — always. During his lifetime, Michael Jackson faced a number of sexual abuse allegations by underage boys. He settled one case out of court, and was acquitted in another. The singer denied all allegations against him.
