Quincy Jones on his Welsh roots


"It's a very special occasion for me because... [it has been] discovered that my father was half-Welsh," explains music producer Quincy Jones while visiting the Royal College of Music and Drama on Cardiff.

Jones, who counts Frank Sinatra, Louis Armstrong, Ella Fitzgerald and Michael Jackson among the stars with whom he worked, went on to liken the Welsh capital to Chicago in its spirit in an interview with BBC Radio Wales' Clive Roderick.
