Quincy Jones to receive Desi Arnaz Pioneer Award


Recommended Posts

From Billboard;



The Latin Songwriters Hall of Fame will present Quincy Jones with a special honor during its upcoming 2015 La Musa Awards ceremony.

Jones will be the recipient of the Desi Arnaz Pioneer Award, named for the Cuban musician who became popularly known as TV’s Ricky Ricardo. The award was created to recognize trailblazers in contemporary music.

Musician, producer, music mogul and 27-time Grammy winner Jones is most often identified with Thriller and known as one of the godfathers of hip-hop. But Q -- who counts Cuban pianist Alfredo Rodriguez among his current proteges -- has had a long, cool connection to Latin music.
