Masterpiece documentary about a master of his craft.
5 October 2018 | by mariamakesmusicSee all my reviews

This was one of the best music documentaries I have watched. I knew Quincy's talent was diverse but wasn't aware of how wide Quincy's scope to make excellent music across so many genres was. He could fuse musical styles but more importantly just transcend styles to produce music whose only category is "damn good music". Very inspiring to watch.
