Quincy Jones has an estimated networth of $310 Million. Quincy Delight Jones Jr. was born March 14, 1933 in Seattle Washington. He has over five decades experience being a musical conductor, record producer, trumpeter, musical arranger, and television producer. In 1951 he won a musical scholarship to the Schillinger House, which is now the Berklee College of Music. But he abandoned he studies there when he was offered a place to tour with band leader Lionel Hampton. After relocating to New York City he earned several freelance commissions arranging songs for artists such as Sarah Vaughn, Duke Ellington, and Ray Charles. In 1963 Charles helped to discover singer Lesley Gore, and arranged some of her biggest hits including, "It's My Party". The following year Charles was the first African-American promoted to Vice President of Mercury Records. That same year he began composing film scores, and eventually he would come to compose over 33. In 1994, Jones along with David Salzman formed the company Quincy Jones/David Salzman Entertainment, or QDE. QDE produces media technology, television programs, and motion pictures. They were responsible for shows such as "MadTV", "In The House", and "The Fresh Prince Of Bel-Air". In 2001 Jones released his own autobiography, and keeping with the times, in 2007 he began the Quincy Jones Video Podcast.
