Quincy (2018, D: Rashida Jones, Alan Hicks) -- Quincy Jones documentary -- Netflix





Artist. Father. Visionary. QUINCY is an intimate look at musical icon and influential legend, Quincy Jones. Available on Netflix September 21st.

Beyond his own acclaim as a trumpeter, producer, conductor, composer and arranger, Quincy Jones’ inimitable gift to discover the biggest talents of the past half of the century is unprecedented. He has shaped the pop culture landscape for 70 years, mentoring and cultivating the careers of young talents, from Lesley Gore and Michael Jackson to Oprah Winfrey and Will Smith. Directed by Rashida Jones (Angie Tribeca and Hot Girls Wanted) and Alan Hicks (Keep On Keepin’ On), QUINCY seamlessly threads personal vérité moments with private archival footage to reveal a legendary life like no other.

Featuring the all-new original song "Keep Reachin'" by Quincy Jones, Mark Ronson, and Chaka Khan.

I would totally watch this.

Quincy Jones is the man when it comes to the R&B music world.

Plus, he got to bang a very young Nastassja Kinski

How many other children of famous fathers made films about their fathers? Must be a bunch of them. I recall George Stevens Jr. making a film from his father's WWII footage. Must be others.

I hope they put this in there:

What were your first impressions of the Beatles?

That they were the worst musicians in the world. They were no-playing motherfuckers. Paul was the worst bass player I ever heard. And Ringo? Don’t even talk about it. I remember once we were in the studio with George Martin, and RingoJones arranged a version of “Love Is a Many-Splendored Thing” for Starr’s 1970 solo debut album Sentimental Journey, which was produced by the Beatles’ frequent collaborator George Martin. The song, and album, are more than a bit gloopy. had taken three hours for a four-bar thing he was trying to fix on a song. He couldn’t get it. We said, “Mate, why don’t you get some lager and lime, some shepherd’s pie, and take an hour-and-a-half and relax a little bit.” So he did, and we called Ronnie Verrell, a jazz drummer. Ronnie came in for 15 minutes and tore it up. Ringo comes back and says, “George, can you play it back for me one more time?” So George did, and Ringo says, “That didn’t sound so bad.” And I said, “Yeah, motherfucker because it ain’t you.” Great guy, though.

I liked Paul’s recent comments on that in GQ:

One further issue relating to the Beatles' early days: A few months ago, Quincy Jones gave two memorable interviews. In one of these, in New York magazine, Jones offered his initial impressions of the Beatles. He said this: "That they were the worst musicians in the world. They were no-playing motherfuckers. Paul was the worst bass player I ever heard."

When I mention this to McCartney, and remind him of exactly what was said, he starts laughing.

"I love this guy," he says. "He's totally out of his tree. But the great thing was, he rang me after this. I'd only heard about it and I'd thought, I'm not sure it's true. The joke is, I love Quincy, even after this. He's a crazy motherfucker. But I respect him, he's done a lot of very good things. So he rang me, and I'm at home on my own. And I'd finished work, so I had a drink, and now I'm grooving at home, I'm cooking, I've got a little bit of wine going, I'm in a good mood, and I don't give a shit. So I get a phone call: 'Is this Mr. McCartney?' 'Yes.' 'Quincy would like to speak with you.' Because he's always worked through security guys. I said, 'Hey, Quince!' 'Paul, how you doing, man?' 'I'm doing great—how are you, you motherfucker!' I'm just jiving with him. 'Paul, I didn't really say that thing—I don't know what happened, man. I never said that. You know I love you guys!' I said, 'If you had said that, you know what I would have said? Fuck you, Quincy Jones!' And he laughed. I said, 'You know I would say to that: Fuck you, Quincy Jones, you fucking crazy motherfucker!' So actually we just had a laugh. And he was like, 'Oh, Paul, you know I love you so much.' 'Yeah, I know you do, Quince.' But he's an old guy. I don't know what it was. But I don't think I'm the worst bass player he's ever heard. Or maybe he's never heard bad bass players. He's talking all of this jazz and musicianship, and he's an arranger and stuff. This is like Buddy Rich saying Ringo couldn't drum. Because coming from Buddy Rich's sensibility, Ringo can't drum. But coming from our sensibility, Buddy Rich is a load of shit. But God bless him."

Badassssss! by Mario Van Peebles is the story of the making of Sweet Sweetback's Badass Song by his father Melvin (and is a far better film)

To really swirl your head, in the original Sweetback, Mario (as a boy) plays the young version of the title character. In Badasssss when they recreate those scenes, Mario cast HIS son to play the younger version of him. So maybe someday Mario's son will make a film about his dad and portray him, with his son portraying the younger version. Ya know, to keep the cycle going.
