Quincy Jones Can’t DQ Atty Expert In Jackson Royalty Row

April 12, 2017 • By

Law360, Los Angeles (April 11, 2017, 10:51 PM EDT) — A California judge on Tuesday rejected Quincy Jones’ request to disqualify an attorney expert designated by Sony and Michael Jackson’s production company in Jones’ $10 million royalty battle, saying there wasn’t a “factual basis” showing the attorney was privy to confidential information when his former firm represented Jones.

Jones’ suit alleges that MJJ Productions Inc., which is controlled by Jackson’s estate, and Sony cheated him out of royalties for the soundtrack to “This Is It” — the documentary about the King of Pop released just months after Jackson’s 2009 death — and the Cirque du Soleil show featuring music from three Jackson albums Jones produced: “Off the Wall,” “Thriller” and “Bad.”

Michael Jackson’s Smooth Criminal – The Untold Story

April 11, 2017 • By

Moonwalker! A fan favourite and an 80’s classic. But Michael’s original concept for Moonwalker was far different to the one we know and love. The original title was ‘The Smooth Criminal Story’ and was to based around the song title of the same name and would sit neatly inside Moonwalker as an extended piece. In entering the world of film for the second time, this time as the creator, producer and brains behind the project and in 1985 under the business ‘Smooth Pictures’, Michael began developing a story that was unique for its time and would have been amazing to watch.

Vacay covers Michael Jackson’s classic “Human Nature”

April 7, 2017 • By

The actor and musician uses only his voice, a guitar and violins to re-structure the MJ ballad.

New York City can be tantalizing. The twinkling lights, the sheer cavalcade of steel structures rising around your feet and the hustle ‘n bustle of everyday living have been immortalized in such silver screen motion pictures as The Godfather, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles and Taxi Driver. Its dreamy idealisms are also toasted in song, from Billie Holiday’s “Autumn in New York” to Billy Joel’s “New York State of Mind” and Alicia Keys’ “Empire State of Mind.” Michael Jackson, one of the most influential pop storytellers of all time, paid tribute to the City That Never Sleeps, as well, with his smoldering ballad “Human Nature,” lifted from his landmark, blockbuster-selling 1982 studio album Thriller. The song, in which he muses on the beauty of the concrete jungle and wanting to take a bite (because it is just human nature), became the fifth single from the disc and a Top 10 Billboard hit.
