After being hospitalized for an unexpected medical issue, Quincy Jones has been released.
A spokesperson for Jones said the 90-year-old music producer had a response to something he ate and, out of an abundance of caution, dialed 911.
On Saturday afternoon, paramedics were called to Jones’ house in Los Angeles to deal with the situation.
Jones was taken to the hospital, where physicians checked on him right away to make sure he was all right.
He was eventually discharged from the hospital after doctors gave him the all clear.
The veteran music producer, according to his representative, never lost consciousness and remained in “great spirits” throughout the ordeal.
In March of this year, Jones reached the age of 90. He has a legion of fans among musicians of all eras.
Jennifer Hudson praised the legendary producer, saying, “He is a blueprint of this industry!” singer and actress Jennifer Hudson said of the prolific producer, with Ludacris agreeing, “Everyone in the music industry looks up to Quincy Jones. It’s that simple.”
A quote from Chaka Khan: “the best that there ever was in his field.”
“Everybody who ever is around Quincy Jones says the same thing, that there’s a light about him,” Oprah Winfrey said in an interview back in 1996, adding how he “stole my heart when we did The Color Purple.”
Rashida Jones, the producer’s daughter, has similarly glowing things to say about her dad: “He is very supportive of anything that I decided to do.”
The modest producer does not give much thought to his own legacy. In 1990 he said he doesn’t “have a clue” what that will be but that he was “just going to keep on doing my thing and hope that it will mean something to somebody.”
