He was honored with an all-star 85th birthday tribute concert at the O2 Arena in London in June.
On Tuesday, the birthday celebration came back across the pond in the form of Q85: A Musical Celebration for Quincy Jones at the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles.
And what better way to shine the spotlight on such a festive event than to have one the one-and-only Oprah Winfrey as a presenter.
Oprah, 64, was the picture of elegance in a black gown that hugged her curves from the hips up, but stylish hung off her body from the legs down.
The media mogul accessorized with a pair of high-fashion bracelets and rings.
And, on this night, she had her dark tresses styled in a shoulder-length bob, complete with major volume and curls.
Turns out, Oprah and Quincy have been friends since he discovered her for her iconic role in the 1985 period drama The Color Purple.
The tribute concert was a live television show taping that is expected to air at a future date.
The incredible line-up of performers honoring the iconic musician included Stevie Wonder, Brian McKnight, John Legend, Gladys Knight, Patti Austin, Gloria Estefan, Charlie Wilson, Ledisi, Gregory Porter, Cynthia Erivo, Jennifer Hudson and Meghan Trainor.
The birthday bash at London’s O2 Arena in June, titled Quincy Jones: A Life in Song, got good reviews, according to AXS.
The three-hour show had an orchestra and featured mostly British artists who performed songs that Jones had written or produced.
Tuesday’s tribute concert comes just four days after the Netflix documentary ‘Quincy’ premiered.
Quincy’s daughter/actress, Rashida Jones, worked with filmmaker Alan Hicks on the project, which has been described as ‘an intimate look into the life of the iconic music producer, trumpeter, songwriter, conductor, composer and music arranger.’
The IMDb synopsis added: ‘A unique force in music and popular culture for 70 years, Jones has transcended racial and cultural boundaries; his story is inextricably woven into the fabric of America.’
Rashida, 42, and Hicks had the monumental task of sifting through 800 hours of new video they shot and 2,000 hours of archival footage.
The music legend came to prominence in the 1950s as a jazz arranger and conductor, before moving on to popular music and film scores.
Along the way he won 27 Grammys and produced albums for late musical icons such as Ray Charles, Michael Jackson, Frank Sinatra, and Aretha Franklin.
Quincy Jones turned 85 back on March 14.
