Even if you somehow haven't heard of record producer Quincy Jones, there's no way you haven't heard his work. The pioneering composer has had a hand in creating some of the 20th century's most iconic music, from dozens of film and TV scores to seminal collaborations with the likes of Frank Sinatra and Michael Jackson. Jones first found his way into the music industry as a jazz musician, and "Quincy Jones: The A&M Years" at the Hollywood Bowl shines a light on three of the influential and transformative jazz albums he made while working for A&M Records: "Walking in Space", "Gula Matari" and "Smackwater Jack". An all-star lineup of jazz artists, including Christian McBride, John Clayton, Dave Grusin, Lee Ritenour and Hubert Laws, explore these classic albums, along with artists from the Quincy stable. Richard Bona, Mandekan Cubano and Jonah Nilsson will be opening the evening.
