  • The last time I did a show in Paris, it was 2000, & man, 19 years later, I’m honored to announce that I’ll be returning to do it again! We’ve got a killer program ready to go with all of the hits & I hope y’awl will join me & our symphony orchestra at the @accorhotels_arena on June 27th!...In times when darkness seems to take over our daily news feeds & much of our mental space, it makes my soul smile to provide a place for all-a-y’awl to gather together & enjoy music that brings us together under 1 roof, regardless of race, gender, cultural differences, & any other man-made barrier. It’s time to spread love & light, & I hope 2 see U there!! ((:0)) Ticket link in bio 👆🏾

  • 86??!! ((:0)) Man, thank-Q for all of the love & beautiful bday wishes you’ve been sending my way! I’m incredibly grateful for this life that I live, & for the ability to think, work, & create…But it doesn’t happen by accident. I made a decision a long, long time ago to recite affirmations to myself every morning (often multiple times a day) to stay on the right track, & I wanted to share a piece of them with you today. I view my affirmations as a road map to my life, & I’m a firm believer that it has helped me to not only make it to 86, but to LIVE to 86. Let’s keep on keepin’ on, & man, I’m about to make this one the best year yet!!… \(^o^)/

  • Clarence “Sweet Potato” “Bump” Avant...Clarence from Climax, NC...The master fixer...& my best friend. They don’t call U the Black Godfather for nothin’. Man, I’ll never forget when you came to me back when I was VP of Mercury Records & approached me about signing Jimmy Smith. I thought it was a great idea, but when I asked how much, you said “I need $450k—in dollars, jelly beans, or coins, take your pick.” I thought you were out of your MIND because an amount like that was unheard of at the time, but then you went ahead & closed the deal elsewhere.
((:0))...Needless to say...a roundabout way of starting an eternal friendship, based off of true love & mad respect. Thank-Q for always catching me before I fell & picking me up when I did. You’ve taught me about business AND life & I hope U know I’ve got your back eternally. Pls keep an eye out for your bday present...450,000 jelly beans \(^o^)/. Happy birthday!!...xxoo

  • Happy, happy birthday to my baby-doonkie @rashidajones!! It’s an absolutely beautiful privilege to be your father, & to say that I’m proud of you would be an understatement. The gift you gave me (the creation of my @Netflix film, “QUINCY”) was one of the most special & touching gifts I’ve ever received (besides my 7 rugrats), so I want to say thank-Q from the bottom of my heart....Love U eternally, my sweet baby!...xxoo...\(^o^)/

  • I’ll never forget meeting Sidney Poitier, Belafonte, & Brando one day in 1951 when I happened to be walking south on Broadway towards Birdland. There was something about Sidney that we could all feel…He had such a kind spirit & I knew it wouldn't be the last time we saw each other. A few years later, he graciously put in a good word about my film scoring & I was hired for "The Slender Thread," & two years later, for "In the Heat of the Night." Fast forward to 1974, right after my first aneurysm...It didn't look like I'd make it, so my friends planned a memorial service for me at The Shrine...This picture was taken that night & I cherish it to this day. He has been there for me in the best of times & also in the darkest...That's TRUE friendship, & I wouldn't trade it for anything in the 🌎!! Happy Birthday to you my dear brother, Sidney!
