"In 1960 I had one of the greatest musical revelations of my life, when I heard Quincy Jones playing with a big band in Lausanne, Switzerland. At the time of course, I never imagined that 36 years later Quincy would celebrate his 50 years in music with an outstanding concert during the 30th Montreux Jazz Festival.
In January '96, I went to see him in California and told him that I would like to do something for his 50th anniversary, but he explained to me that a tribute to him was already being put together in the U.S.A. I insisted that I wanted to produce something different, however, to have his whole career on stage, from the first number he wrote, which was Kingfish for Lionel Hampton, right the way through to his most recent triumphs.
So we started to make a list of titles but he then discovered that he actually had no idea whatsoever where the arrangements for all of this work might be _ thought they might be scattered about in a few warehouses around Los Angeles ! I tried to remain calm but could still only give him the slightly hysterical response, Ôyou really have to send out a squad to find and save all of this amazing stuff !Õ
He finally got hold of most of it and we had another meeting at his home, but this time he said, Ôwe can't do it - everybody's dead, and Ray Charles can't make the date". I convinced him that we could have other artists: for Sinatra, we asked Phil Collins; for Ray Charles, Mick Hucknall, James Morrison for Frank Rosolino, and so on
We also hired a big band from Chicago, one of the high school Orchestras Quincy used to work with. They got the arrangements early and rehearsed until they became nothing short of the proverbial Ôextremely well-oiled machineÕ.
In 1991, 1992 and 1993, when Quincy co-produced the Montreux Jazz Festival, we had put together an "in-house" band, and for the 1996 concert we managed to book most of those incredible musicians again, including Greg Phillinganes, A. Ray Fuller, Nathan East, Stephen Ferrone and Luis Conte.
Then of course we added more soloists: Chaka Khan and Patti Austin, Gerald Albright and David Sanborn, Toots Thielemans, a 12-year old blues harmonica player from Kansas, Brody Buster, and an a cappella band from Cuba, Vocal Sampling. QuincyÕs daughter, Jolie, and Patrice Rushen were also amongst the further backing vocalists we had on some of the tracks.
They all rehearsed and worked with extraordinary enthusiasm, and the result is this fantastic, historic concert !
The energy, the spirit and the love which Quincy puts into everything he does, has taught and influenced me a tremendous amount - he also has that killer smile, so that when he asks you for practically anything at all, it's impossible to say no.
This DVD is wonderful proof of Quincy's genius enjoy it !
