Ed. Note: What follows is a repost of an item by CL Marketing Director Joran Oppelt from his recent trip to SXSW. At the time, I thought it was just a really cool video. Today I think it's become something more. You can see Joran's original post here.

Quincy recalls his first encounters with Michael Jackson and their work on the best-selling records Off the Wall and Thriller, as well as the birth of MTV and how they broke through the "no black artists" mandate.

This exclusive CL TV video was shot in March at Jones' 2009 South by Southwest keynote address. Check out the Quincy Jones video by clicking here.
