QUINCY JONES - THE 75TH BIRTHDAY CELEBRATION - LIVE AT MONTREUX – 2008 –
BLU-RAY DVD


A few mentors have marked the life of Claude Nobs, Founder and CEO of the Montreux Jazz Festival, and Quincy Jones is definitely one of them. Quincy’s 75th birthday was an ideal opportunity to pay a tribute. For almost a year, work was underway to make this evening a unique world event and all the artists accepted without hesitating, some even volunteering to take part!

The result is a very impressive line-up and a very well-deserved tribute to a giant who has one of the most remarkable careers in the history of music.

All profits from the sales of this Blu-Ray will go to the Quincy Jones Foundation to support and promote initiatives around the world that contribute to the health, well-being and dignity of children. Its mission is to give young people a voice to inspire and empower them to live to their fullest potential.
