In an interview in Seattle with CNN about his life and career, music producer Quincy Jones spoke of his work with Michael.
CNN: You are, arguably, best known for producing Michael Jackson. How did that come about?
Quincy: When I was a musical director we were working together on a film project. He asked me to help him find a producer for his first solo album. Watching him was incredible. He would learn everybody else’s parts — the dialogues, the songs, the dance steps — and I saw something in him. I saw a part of him that had never been exposed before. We went all the way to Michael’s soul at that time and it was an amazing experience.
