Editors’ Notes Once upon a time, Quincy Jones was best known as a trumpeter for Dizzy Gillespie's band, and he scored his first hit introducing jubilant horn to Lesley Gore's party. Now he's one of the most revered pop producers in history, having helped artists like Michael Jackson and George Benson reinvent funk for a suave night on the town. This playlist includes it all: big band, disco, swing, and, of course, plenty of R&B.
