Quincy Jones' 75th Birthday Celebration: Live at Montreux 2008. Eagle Vision 000074411. Quincy Jones' 75th Birthday Celebration: Live at Montreux 2008.

The one drawback of Quincy Jones’ 75th Birthday Celebration: Live at Montreux 2008 is the same problem that haunts many concert DVDs: why would you want to sit at home watching something that’s meant to be seen live? Many of these artists are still touring (although you’re not going see as many of them gathered in one place as you do here), and two hours plus is a long time to spend sitting on the couch watching something that other people were actually attending.

In 2008 the Montreux Festival honoured Quincy Jones on his 75th birthday with an all-star concert. Among those paying tribute were Herbie Hancock, Mick Hucknall, Al Jarreau, Paolo Nutini, and James Morrison. Hits include Let The Good Times Roll, Honeysuckle Rose and Smoke Gets In Your Eyes. In 2008 the Montreux Festival honoured Quincy Jones on his 75th birthday with an all-star concert. Among those paying tribute were Herbie Hancock, Mick Hucknall, Al Jarreau, Paolo Nutini,.

When an artist of the stature of Quincy Jones celebrates his 75th birthday you can be sure its going to be quite a party. The main concert lasted over two and a half hours and the musicians then spilled out into the bars and cafes of Montreux with the music still going strong as the sun was coming up the next morning! Backing on all tracks provided by the Montreux In The Big Band conducted by Pepe Lienhard.

This album peaked at on Billboard's Top Contemporary Jazz Albums chart. This video is intended for archival reference use only. This is the official music video for the 1987 Best Pop Instrumental Grammy winning song "Minute By Minute" by Larry Carlton. This song was made famous by the Doobie Brothers and Michael McDonald provides the keyboards on this track from Larry's 1987 Release, Discovery, and joins him here for the video. Quincy Jones giving homage to John JR Robinson at his 75th Birthday Celebration in Montreux, Switzerland.

Legendary composer, producer, arranger, and social activist Quincy Jones has been an inspiration for a number of different artists. In 1968, together with songwriter Bob Rissel, Jones became the first African-American to be nominated for an Oscar (Best Original Song for Banning)  . A number of musicians who have had the opportunity to work with Jones during the years gathered to celebrate his 75th birthday. For well over two hours, they sang, played, joked and thanked a living legend. The actual concert is truly impossible to describe with simple words. The show took place on July 14th 2008 at the legendary Montreux Jazz Festival, an event with which Quincy Jones has a long and rich history, and the cream of musical talent turned up to serenade Q on this very special occasion. The main concert lasted over two and a half hours and the musicians then spilled out into the bars and cafes of Montreux with the music still going strong as the sun was coming up the next morning!
