Quincy Jones is the greatest producer of all time; that should be know as simple fact. Above Phil Spector, above George Martin, above Jimmy Jam Harris and Terry Lewis, above LA Reid and Babyface above them all towers Quincy Jones. He has produced everyone from Lesley Gore to Dizzy Gillespie to Donna Summer and, of course, Michael Jackson; breadth and depth of his career is utterly unmatched. 1989s Back on Block was Joness ' well-deserve, Grammy-conquering victory lap. The album won an astounding seven Grammys, encompassing everything from Best Jazz Fusion Performance to Best Rap Performance by a Duo or Group and the big prize, Album of Year. His first artist album in eight years Go platinum in the US, topping both R & B and Jazz Album charts, and hit 9 on Billboard's pop albums chart. But none of that is the best thing about Back on Block; best thing about the album is what an absolute blast it is. You dont even have to start at the beginning of the album. Start with its first single, cover of smooth 1976 Brothers Johnson soul smash Ill Be Good to You, sung this time around by R & B titans Ray Charles and Chaka Khan. But what Jones does is to take those two legends and put them in nearly New Jack Swing arrangement, and the results are ebullient. Jones produced the original, and with this remake, he Take Song Back to the top of the R & B chart. In lesser hands, Album that jump from adult R & B to Jazz to hip-hop would sound schizophrenic. But in the hands of Quincy Jones, it flows naturally, like a mixtape. And that does not even mention two of the album's loveliest, quietest moments. Setembro is a gorgeous, Jazz piece with wordless vocals from Take 6 and playing by such luminaries as Gerald Albright on sax, George Duke on Fender Rhodes, Benson on guitar, and Herbie Hancock on keys, and its smoooooth. Then there album monster ballad and closing track, Secret Garden. Vocal duties are handled by slow Jam-team of El Debarge, Jam Ingram, Al B. Sure!, And Barry White, and they are predictably immaculate. The song itself was pen by Jones, Debarge, Garrett, and long-time Jones compatriot Rod Temperton. Joness production wraps it all in a cashmere blanket, and its six minutes of sexy. Garden was the second single from Back on Block and its second 1 on the R & B chart, and is to this day a Quiet Storm classic. Moment to discuss Qs Secret weapon, Siedah Garrett. She has writing credits on five songs on Back on Block, and her voice appears on seven. She likely came into Jones orbit via Michael Jacksons Bad, on which she co-write Man in Mirror and sang I Just Cant Stop Loving You as duet with Jackson. Because he knew talent when he saw and heard it, Jones used her all over Block to great effect.

Grammy Awards

The 33d annual Grammy Awards belong to Quincy Jones. His Album back on Block, ambitious attempt to bring together Black musical styles from jazz to soul to funk to rap, was named Album of the Year, and it brought Awards to nearly everyone who worked on it, multi-generational roster of musicians from Ray Charles to rapper Ice-T. Mr. Jones was name nonclassical producer of Year and songs from Album won in rap, rhythm-and-blues, jazz fusion and two instrumental arranging categories; back on Block Was Also name Best-engineer Album. With 19 previous Awards and 6 under his own name from back on Block, Mr. Jones became the musician with the second-highest number of Grammys, behind Sir Georg Solti, who won 28. Phil Collins's Another Day in Paradise, despairing Song about the homeless, was named Record of the Year. Ballad from Distance, most recently Record by Bette Midler, was named Song of the Year, second year in a row that Ms. Midler had a Record winning Song. Song of Life from Distance, song that is five years old, has also been Record by Nanci Griffith and by Byrds. It is an elegiac song about social problems and global tension, and lately it has become associated with public sentiment about the War in the Persian Gulf. I lived through the Vietnam War and the civil rights movement, and I feel that in one way or another I've been writing that song my whole life, Ms. Gold said backstage. Sinead o'connor boycotted the Awards last night, because she maintains they honor commerciality rather than artistic achievement. She worries too much, said Garry Shandling, host, in his opening monologue. But even if she didn't want it, she received an award for I Do not Want What I haven't get in the new category, alternative Music. If they send it to her, she'll send it back, said Miss o'connor's spokeswoman, Elaine Schock. The Grammy Awards ceremony was held yesterday at Radio City Music Hall, in New York for the first time since 1988. Virtually everyone in the major leagues of recorded-Music business-performers, executives, technicians, hangers-on-descend on the Hall yesterday. By one count, there was a 3 000-person waiting list for tickets to the 6 000-seat Hall. It's harder to get tickets to Grammys than to get nominated, says Ms. Gold. The War with Iraq goes nearly unremarked; few performers mention peace, or say they were sending out prayers to soldiers in the Persian Gulf. On Different Coast Awards ceremonies, telecast on CBS-TV, usually held in Los Angeles, which has the largest local chapter and headquarters of the 8 000-member National Academy of Recording Arts and Sciences. Backstage, New York Mayor David N. Dinkins said he would do anything I had to to bring the Awards ceremony back to New York in the future. The ceremony was broadcast to more than 60 countries, including, for the first time, Saudi Arabia, Poland and Czechoslovakia.

The Block System helps me condense my schedule to a consistent 120 training hours a month. I explain it in Ignite Fire: Secrets to Building a Successful Personal Training Career. Create three categories of clients: consistent clients, wishy-washy clients, program design. Look at your schedule and identify patterns. Choose blocks of time you want to work. Each block should be five to six hours long. If youre morning person, your blocks could be 6 am to noon. Or if youre night owl like me, 4: 30 to 9: 30 pm works well. Approach your consistent clients first. If their sessions are already inside your blocks, give them the first chance to take those slots. Offer remaining spots to wishy-washy clients. But only ones you wish to keep. This is your chance to drop ones who make your life miserable. Place program design clients into any openings you have leave. It is fine to book somebody outside of Block, if it is a really good client and you make it clear, that is why youre doing it. Just do do it consistently. If you do, youll be right back where you startedworking, too many hours, and not giving your clients the level of training they deserve.
