In addition to its meandering through two overlong hours, it also ends up being maddeningly superficial, giving only the most cursory mention of several genuinely intriguing eras of Quincy Jones' truly epic life.

Quincy offers access and intimacy, but occasionally skimps on psychological nuance or insight into the work itself.

The museum story actually would have made a better narrative arc for "Quincy," which instead wanders every which way, and never seems to get its subject to relax on camera.
