Warner Chappell Music has entered a global publishing administration agreement with the legendary Quincy Jones, which covers his entire songwriting catalog along with all current and future material. That includes more than 2,000 compositions, some by songwriters under the umbrella of the icon's Quincy Jones Music Publishing company, including the Brothers Johnson and Siedah Garrett.
Over his seven-decade career, Jones has made a profound mark on the global music community as a composer, record producer, artist, arranger, conductor, instrumentalist, label executive, film and TV producer, magazine founder, multi-media entrepreneur and humanitarian. He has earned a record 80 Grammy Award nominations, including 28 wins across a wide array of categories, from jazz and R&B to pop, spoken word, children's and more. That's not to mention winning multiple record of the year (for 1985's "We Are The World" charity single and Michael Jackson's 1983 hit "Beat It"), album of the year (for Jackson's 1983 Thriller and Jones' own Back On The Block in 1990) and producer of the year awards (in 1981, 1983 and 1990).
