esquirejanIn their January 2009 issue, Esquire chats up Bremerton son Quincy Jones for their “Meaning of Life” bonanza. They interviewed a subject from each state, and notes that “Jones moved to Bremerton, a suburb of Seattle, when he was ten years old.” I’ve never considered Bremerton a suburb, but I won’t split hairs here. In the interview, the man who’s made records with everyone from Count Basie to Michael Jackson says:

“When you chase music for money, God walks out of the room.”

Legendary music journalist Ben Fong-Torres is at work on a biography of Jones.
