We wanted to take a little time out today and send some happy birthday wishes to one of the greatest musicians of our time, the one and only Quincy Delight Jones. Yes, here at GFM we’ve had our moments where we’ve called into to question some recent projects by Q but that in no way diminishes our love and admiration for someone who has done so much for music.
