A Netflix documentary following his life and career was released on Sept. 21 and is available now. Over the span of his career, Jones received an impressive 79 Grammy Award nominations, 27 Grammy wins, and a Grammy Legend Award in 1992. Despite decades of a successful career, he revealed to Billboard in an interview earlier this year that he's not stopping anytime soon.
“I was thinking about retiring," he said. "But I think I’m going to let somebody else do that."
