Canadian Music Week Announces Celebrity Interview: Quincy Jones, Saturday, May 10th, Presented by JAZZ.FM91

Nikki Yanofsky Set to Perform New Material From Her Album Executive Produced by Jones, Little Secret, Friday, May 8th and 9th

TORONTO, ONTARIO -- (Marketwired) -- 03/27/14 -- Editor's note: There is one photo associated with this press release.

With a career spanning six decades, 79 Grammy nominations and 27 Grammys, including a Grammy Legend Award, the world-renowned Quincy Jones has made countless contributions to the entertainment industry as an American record producer, conductor, arranger, composer, television producer, film producer, instrumentalist, magazine founder, record company executive, humanitarian, and jazz trumpeter.

On Saturday, May 10th as part of the 2014 Music Summit, Canadian Music Week presents a Celebrity Interview with Jones, covering his vast list of accomplishments, contributions and endless anecdotes comprising his career. The interview will take place from 5:00pm to 6:00pm, and will be conducted by Ross Porter, Canadian broadcast executive of JAZZ.FM91, music authority, event producer, and published author. Porter was named to the Order of Canada in 2013 for his contributions to broadcasting.

Jones, who has been bridging gaps between jazz and pop since the '60s, has teamed up with Nikki Yanofsky as executive producer and co-manager of the jazz-pop sensation. Having collaborated on her recent release Little Secret (released via A440 Entertainment/Universal Music Canada, May 6th), the two make a likely pairing as the album combines pop-song structures with sophisticated harmonies, club-ready beats with punchy big-band horns, and ear worm hooks with scat-singing solos. Jones looks forward to introducing Yanofsky's at her shows on May 8th and 9th at Kool Haus and Revival, respectively.

"For many years now, it has been both my dream and my goal to inspire young people to recognize and appreciate jazz and blues," said Jones. "Nikki Yanofsky is a leading voice in a generation of young artists who are bringing the quality of music back up. Little Secret is the result of years of hard work, and her stab at bringing her influences to her own generation. I'm proud to be her executive producer and excited for the world to hear this album."

The celebrity interview is open to all CMW delegates and registered showcasing artists. A limited number of tickets to this individual session are also available for purchase. To attend this exclusive one-on-one with Quincy Jones, visit the Canadian Music Week website - www.cmw.net - to register for your delegate pass or to purchase your ticket.

Most DevOps journeys involve several phases of maturity. Research shows that the inflection point where organizations begin to see maximum value is when they implement tight integration deploying their code to their infrastructure. Success at this level is the last barrier to at-will deployment. Storage, for instance, is more capable than where we read and write data. In his session at @DevOpsSummit at 20th Cloud Expo, Josh Atwell, a Developer Advocate for NetApp, will discuss the role and valu...

This talk centers around how to automate best practices in a multi-/hybrid-cloud world based on our work with customers like GE, Discovery Communications and Fannie Mae. Today’s enterprises are reaping the benefits of cloud computing, but also discovering many risks and challenges. In the age of DevOps and the decentralization of IT, it’s easy to over-provision resources, forget that instances are running, or unintentionally expose vulnerabilities.
Everywhere we turn in our industry we can find strong opinions about the direction, type and nature of cloud’s impact on computing and business. Another word that is used in every context in our industry is “hybrid.” In his session at 20th Cloud Expo, Alvaro Gonzalez, Director of Technical, Partner and Field Marketing at Peak 10, will use a combination of a few conceptual props and some research recently commissioned by Peak 10 to offer a real-world consideration of how the various categories of...
DevOps is often described as a combination of technology and culture. Without both, DevOps isn't complete. However, applying the culture to outdated technology is a recipe for disaster; as response times grow and connections between teams are delayed by technology, the culture will die.

In his Day 3 Keynote at 20th Cloud Expo, Chris Brown, a Solutions Marketing Manager at Nutanix, will explore t...
Five years ago development was seen as a dead-end career, now it’s anything but – with an explosion in mobile and IoT initiatives increasing the demand for skilled engineers. But apart from having a ready supply of great coders, what constitutes true ‘DevOps Royalty’?

In his keynote at @DevOpsSummit at 20th Cloud Expo, Jeffrey Scheaffer, GM and SVP, Continuous Delivery Busine...
Detecting internal user threats in the Big Data eco-system is challenging and cumbersome. Many organizations monitor internal usage of the Big Data eco-system using a set of alerts. This is not a scalable process given the increase in the number of alerts with the accelerating growth in data volume and user base. Organizations are increasingly leveraging machine learning to monitor only those data elements that are sensitive and critical, autonomously establish monitoring policies, and to detect...
