Listen Up: The Lives Of Quincy Jones

The extraordinary life of Quincy Jones — one of the 20th century’s most influential and talented composers, musicians and music producers — provides the basis of this offbeat, free-form documentary tribute. With little regard for formal timelines and traditional documentary biography methods, the film is an amazing patchwork of personal insights featuring a constellation of music stars including his long-time friend Ray Charles, Miles Davis, Frank Sinatra, Herbie Hancock, Ella Fitzgerald, Michael Jackson, Aretha Franklin, Dizzy Gillespie and rappers Big Daddy Kane and Flavor Flav, as well as politicians, filmmakers and other important people. Some of the most moving scenes involve Jones returning to his childhood home in Chicago and recounting honest and painful memories from his childhood. Jones does not shy from discussing everything — from his mother’s mental illness, to his marital problems, to his serious health conditions. He also looks frankly at his career.

This is an answer that has changed many times in my life and will probably change more often, but for now, Listen Up: The Lives Of Quincy Jones.

No movie ever has filled me with so much strange energy and gotten me so immersed in it. The story is really solid, the pacing is great, and all of the actors give great performances. This movie online seriously is incredible. My favorite movie of this director, and that’s saying something!

This director is great. With Listen Up: The Lives Of Quincy Jones online he seems to be setting himself some kind of a test – how far over the top can he go? I wanted to add this full movie to the web so everyone now can see it online for free.
