During his six decades in show business, music icon and entertainment impresario Quincy Jones has worked with such legendary performers as Ray Charles, Frank Sinatra, Michael Jackson, and Bono. He's also been a trendsetter on the technological front as the first producer to record Fender electric bass in 1953 and use synthesizer 14 years later. Now Quincy is using technology again to reach out to his legion of fans in the form of this series of podcasts in which he'll share what's on his mind and what's turning him on.

Disappointing, you don't see a lot of Quincy!
I just finished watching episode #4 of Quincy Jones' Video Podcast and I have to say - I'm incredibly disappointed. I'm disappointed because I really expected a lot more from Quincy Jones. Maybe my expectations were too high, I'm not sure - but I feel like he - and his staff - don't really "get" the medium. The first episode of the podcast featured Quincy obviously reading from some cue cards about how he was going to do this podcast and what to expect. He wasn't looking directly at the camera and no eye contact directly with the camera means no eye contact with your viewer - which diminishes the connection you will make with the viewer. We know he's reading. The second and third episodes were glimpses into his producing a song with Celine Dion - and while the footage was interesting - once again I didn't feel like Quincy was making any attempt to connect with the audience of his podcast. The fourth episode I just watched at lunch - this was the one that really bothered me. We see footage of Quincy sitting at home talking in general terms about hurricane Katrina. It's obvious it's a situation where he's being "interviewed" because you can hear off-camera someone saying "uh huh" and such - acknowledging what he is saying. His comments are general - but we never get a sense of how he really feels about Katrina - other than the generic "it's a tragedy" that many people feel. Also - he never looks at the camera - never acknowledges the audience. Interspersed in between his brief comments is footage of some interviews with Katrina victims. He gives us no context for these interviews - they just kind of come and go. We're left with a teaser to stay tuned next week for more with Quincy and Usher. So what leaves me so empty with this video podcast - is an opportunity missed. It's an opportunity to bond on a one-on-one basis with the viewer, to address them personally and to make the viewer feel like they are getting an inside view of Quincy and his life. We're getting a surface look at it - but that's all. I have to wonder if his production company kind of started this video podcast with this intent, but that Quincy doesn't really get the concept. I heard his interview with Rob Walch on Podcast411 - and while that was interesting and more personal then his podcast is - I don't necessarily get that Quincy understands totally what this whole podcast thing is. Disappointing, because I really wanted to learn more about Quincy and I had really hoped for an intimate conversation with him, at least from him.
