Veteran producer Quincy Jones has once again rejects the offer to bring back Michael Jackson's music career and would love working with Jamie Cullum.
The hope of Michael Jackson's come back to be a big bang is slightly devastated by the withdrawal of Quincy Jones from this project. A long time partner in music and the man behind the genius "Thriller", Jones asked people to cut him some slack.
"Man please, I've got enough to do," Jones said in an interview with NME. "We already did that. I have talked to him about working with him again but I've got too much to do. I've got 900 products, I'm 74 years old. Give me a break."
Many speculate that even with Jones' involvement, they're not sure of Jackson's come back for two things, Jackson's capability that may have gone obsolete and Jones' knowledge of today's music. Timbaland and Pharrell Williams were the two names often picked as a better option to bring back Jackson's career.
All in all, Jones showed that he still 'got' it by picking an Ivor Novello Award recently for Special International Award. He in particular liking what the big champ Amy Winehouse did with her producer Mark Ronson. He said, "Mark Ronson is almost my son-in-law. He's a great producer and I'm a big fan of Amy's music."
Jones' current project is with directors Steven Spielberg and Ang Lee to create music for Beijing Olympics. When asked whom he would like to work with in the future he said, "Jamie Cullum. I love Jamie, I really do."
