The legendary music impresario, Quincy Jones, has said this piece of advice from his bandmate at the time, Count Basie, was one of the best pieces he ever received. A man who started out playing trumpet for bandleader Lionel Hampton, who went on to orchestrate for Sinatra, produce Michael Jackson and champion Hip-Hop and Rap. A man who managed change and often created the future. Not a bad role model for any business. A fierce intelligence, aligned with an extraordinary work ethic, he has excelled at everything he has done, except perhaps by his own admission, marriage.
