Public Notice
Public Notice ponders the end of the world as we know it, and feels damn fine. Happy New Year!
Columns  December 31, 1999, by Kate X Messer
"...The piece wasn't about a new album or hairdo, it was about the gazillion-selling pop singer's latest crusade, the Jubilee 2000 Coalition. The coalition is a group of politicos and pop-culture-types (including The Bone, Quincy Jones, and Bob Geldolf) united to encourage world leaders to forgive the debts of HIPCs (Highly Indebted Poor Countries), impoverished nations of the Third World, by the year 2000..."

"...A GREAT DAY IN HARLEMProducer: Jean Bach and Matthew Seig; writers: Bach, Seig, and Susan Peehl; editor: Peehl; narrator: Quincy Jones; interviews with Art Kane, Dizzy Gillespie, Art Blakey, Sonny Rollins, Marian McPartland, Horace Silver, Gerry Mulligan, Art Farmer, and others. This hour-long documentary is the story of a photograph: a fascinating story about a fortuitous moment frozen in time, a moment that innocently bares the bedrock of an era, a transitory moment that can now become a fertile doorway. Fifty-seven New York City jazz musicians gathered for this photograph, which was shot one summer morning in 1958 on the steps of a brownstone on 126th Street..."

Texacala Jones & Her T.J. Hookers (Honey)
Texas Platters
Music Review  December 3, 1999, by Christopher Gray
"...Texacala Jones & Her T.J. Hookers (Honey) Honey Records is a bit of an ironic label for Texacala Jones, because the Hole in the Wall diva specializes in songs that make sandpaper sound like silk -- check the sinewy versions of Marvin Gaye's "Ain't That Peculiar" and Quincy Jones' "In the Heat of the Night" for further proof..."

The Priests of Syrinx
What’s in a Rock & Roll Hall of Fame anyway?
DAILY Music  May 17, 2013, by Raoul Hernandez
"...opens the musical tribute to King with “Oh Pretty Woman.” He and Mayer then trading licks on King’s signature “Born Under a Bad Sign” as Booker T. Jones take a verse may not be Clapton and Santana exchanging scorch at the first Crossroads Guitar Festival in Dallas, but it’s enough to assure crusty old Antone’s boosters like myself that no, Virginia, the blues aren’t dead and buried...."

'Kind of Blue' at 50
'Kind of Blue' panel gets kind of cool
Music Story  March 20, 2009, by Dan Oko
"..."And Coltrane says, 'I can't stop.' So Miles says, 'Well, did you ever think of taking the horn out of your mouth?'" The pair famously went on to complete the Miles Davis Sextet's seminal album for Columbia, now being celebrated anew on its 50th anniversary. Avakian's story was just one of the highlights of this discussion, which was also joined by Davis' son Erin Davis and nephew Vincent Wilburn Jr., who reminisced about learning music at "Miles Davis University." "We got criticized every night," the younger Davis recalled, "whether we wanted to or not." When surprise guest Quincy Jones tried to sneak into the back row, panel moderator and noted jazz historian Ashley Kahn did the polite thing and invited him onstage..."

Sheet Music
Music Story  May 28, 2004, by David Lynch
"...No punches are pulled in this exhaustively researched and contextualized biography: Charles' first experience with sex, heroin addiction, womanizing and divorce, and junkyard doggin' his own band. The music is also revealed: early Seattle salad days with Quincy Jones, the ability to compose for every big band instrument, duets with George Jones and Willie Nelson, and Charles' sheer power to move people with his sound expression..."

Record Reviews
Music Review  November 13, 1998
"...Lovano is no stranger to the trio concept, either, having been a longtime member of drummer Paul Motian's Trio with guitarist Bill Frisell, and having recorded a little-known trio date on Enja earlier in his career. Here he gets hard-core with as good a power trio as you could assemble: Lovano, former Coltrane drummer Elvin Jones, and masterful bassist Dave Holland..."

A Little Tongue-in-Chic
Books Story  May 30, 1997, by Margaret Moser
"...The Chic Simple series The recognizable names that bring the biggest smiles: David Bowie, still known by his birth name in Davy Jones and the Lower Third, is shown sporting exceedingly long collar tips and flower-print ties popular in the day while Smokey Robinson and the Miracles dance in matching tuxes with satin lapels and bowties. There's Quincy Jones in a seersucker jacket, Sonny and Cher looking just god-awful..."

Little Melba & Her Big Trombone
Little known female jazz trombone player gets her due – with children
Music Review  October 15, 2015, by Raoul Hernandez
"...No rhyme, but copious reason, Little Melba & Her Big Trombone doesn't read like kiddie lit. Melba Liston (1926-99) played, wrote, and arranged in a long, mostly unheralded career that included sharing bandstands with Duke Ellington, Dizzy Gillespie, Billie Holiday, Quincy Jones, Randy Weston, Gerald Wilson, and more..."
