Born on the South Side of Chicago on March 14, 1933, the son of Sarah Frances (née Wells), a bank officer, and Quincy Delight Jones Sr., a semi-professional baseball player, Quincy Delight Jones Jr. was introduced to music by his mother, who sang religious songs, and by his next-door neighbour, Lucy Jackson. When Jones was five or six, Jackson played stride piano next door, and he would listen through the walls. Lucy recalled that after he heard her one-day, she could not get him off her instrument. At age 14, Jones introduced himself to the 16-year-old Ray Charles after watching him play at the Black Elks Club. Jones cites Charles as an early inspiration for his own music career, noting that Charles overcame a disability (blindness) to achieve his musical goals.
