Quincy Jones on KCR, 06.06.96
My man Diplo just hipped me to a video of Herbie Hancock in the studio showing Quincy Jones how he uses the Fairlight synthesizer and other super early sequencers and synths. I immediately went looking for the KCR show when Quincy was a guest in '96. He came up with the old homies from the Steve Rifkind Company (Steve, Jon, Modjoe...) and apparently they had been hitting some clubs, cause Q was lit, and honestly, seemed to have no clue why he was at a college radio station at 3 in the a.m. with a rag tag crew of deliquents. We opened the phone lines, some funny moments ensued, as did a few that were slightly awkward. But Quincy was a sport and stuck around for the long haul. I saw him a few weeks later at Spy Bar, went up to him and shook his hand and reminded him how we had met, while he looked at me like I was an alien. Enjoy.
