Washington, September 24 : Legendary producer Quincy Jones has refused to help Michael Jackson record a new album.
The man behind Jackson's famous records "Thriller" and "Bad" says that he is busy working on a big tribute collection set for next spring.
According to him, he is working with several hip and R andB stars for the new compilation.
"We're trying to set up something for Mariah Carey now," Fox News quoted Q, who was one of the several prominent guests last night at an all star fundraiser for Tony Bennett and wife Susan's Exploring the Arts Foundation, as saying.
The evening was hosted by Whoopi Goldberg, and featured performances by Jerry Seinfeld, singer-actor Terrence Howard, John Mayer.
Eighty-two-year-old Bennett himself closed the four hour evening at Cipriani downtown by crooning five classic songs.
