11 Mar Legend – Quincy Jones gets a music makeover!
Some of today’s biggest recording artists and producers including Usher, Ludacris, Akon, Jamie Foxx, Jennifer Hudson, Mary J. Blige, T-Pain, Robin Thicke, LL Cool J, John Legend, Snoop Dogg, Wyclef Jean, Q-Tip, Talib Kweli, Three 6 Mafia, David Banner, BeBe Winans, Jermaine Dupri, and Scott Storch, among others, have joined forces to celebrate the music of multi-Grammy winning producer, composer and arranger Quincy Jones by recording contemporary versions of popular recordings from his massive catalog for a new album from Interscope Records entitled Q: Soul Bossa Nostra. “A family celebration,”
Q has said about the project, “Each of these songs had incredible artists and unique stories from when we originally recorded them. I think that these new interpretations will not only introduce these songs to a whole new generation of music fans, but inspire them to seek out the original recordings and show that these songs really stand the test of time…that’s the ultimate mark of a great tune.”
Watch-out for T-Pain and Robin Thicke (produced by T-Pain) on a re-make of Michael Jacksons’s Grammy nominated classic “P.Y.T.” from Thriller;
Mmmm…should be interesting!
Q: Soul Bossa Nostra will be released May/June, 2010.
