Quincy Jones Honored

The well-deserved awards never stop for Quincy Jones. This week, he was announced as a recipient of the 2008 NEA Jazz Masters Award. The award is the nation’s highest honor in the jazz genre. More information, as well as the other recipients, is on the NEA site.

Quincy also has a new podcast series. Four episodes are online so far. The first two featured Quincy and Celine Dion recording for the We All Love Ennio Morricone tribute. The third and fourth focused on New Orleans, two years after Hurricane Katrina. You can subscribe at iTunes or view them at Q’s site (relaunching later this year).
