Growing up in Chicago, Quincy Jones' first exposure to music came from the religious songs of his mother.

It was as a high school trumpeter that Quincy became deeply interested in composing and arranging and won a scholarship to the Berklee College of Music then known as Schillinger House in 1951.

He eventually left school accepting an offer to tour with Lionel Hampton.

Following a move to New York he worked on commission arranging songs for artists including Duke Ellington, Count Basie, and Sarah Vaughan.

Quincy began his long production career in 1964 when he became the vice president of Mercury Records.
