Quincy Delight Jones, Jr. is an American music conductor, record producer, musical arranger, film composer, television producer, and trumpeter. During five decades in the entertainment industry, Jones has earned a record 79 Grammy Award nominations, 27 Grammys, including a Grammy Legend Award in 1991. He is best known as the producer of the album Thriller, by pop icon Michael Jackson, which has sold over 110 million copies worldwide, and as the producer and conductor of the charity song “We Are the World”.
Born March 14, 1933, his primary personality traits are represented by the Chinese Zodiac elemental animal sign, the Water Rooster. The Water Rooster is perhaps the most intellectual and flexible of the species. We find we can usually reason with him, especially in an academic environment. He is very social and put his communications skills to good use in that context. This, plus his penchant for dressing smartly means that he is likely to be not only an excellent orator but also to have a commanding presence.
