Quincy Jones, the Guest of Honour at the Ystad Sweden Jazz Festival and award-winning journalist Doug Ramsey will discuss trends in jazz and musicians they have known during Mr. Jones’ six decades as a powerful presence in music, films and television.
They began their careers in Seattle in the early 1950s, Mr. Jones in music, Mr. Ramsey in news.
Now, the arcs of their divergent paths meet in Ystad as they share stories and their visions of the future of the music they love.
