Jules Buckley and his Metropole Orkest returned to the BBC Proms on 22 August to celebrate half a century of compositions, arrangements and productions from the 27 Grammy award winner Quincy Jones – one of the most influential jazz musicians of the 21st century.

Throughout the evening a host of prodigious multi-instrumentalists including Alfredo Rodríguez, Richard Bona, Laura Mvula and Jacob Collier showcased brand new compositions and musical tributes to Quincy Jones. Take a look at jazz organist, pianist, gospel musician and music producer Cory Henry’s performance of Jones’ They Call Me Mr Tibbs:

This funky number was composed as the eponymous track for Gordon Douglas’ 1970s film They Call Me Mister Tibbs. The film was a sequel to In the Heat of the Night, for which Quincy received a Grammy Award for best soundtrack nomination.
