Reuben Jackson to Teach Class on The Music of Quincy Jones [virtual event]
February 28, 2021 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm$50
Reuben will teach the class through Politics and Prose bookstore
Producer/arranger Quincy Jones is best known (and celebrated) for his work with mega-stars like Michael Jackson and vocalist Donna Summer. This class will spotlight Jones’s equally compelling work as a Big Band leader, arranger for jazz vocalists like Sarah Vaughan, Frank Sinatra,” as well as music from film soundtracks (“In The Heat Of The Night,” “In Cold Blood,” “The Color Purple”). Each recording vividly illustrates Jones’s mastery of (to quote the composer) “soul and science.”
