The legendary music producer was selected for the prestigious prize in recognition of his "personal commitment to the arts" and for giving "exceptional time, energy, and funds to artists and their work".

His actress daughter Rashida looked on with pride as Jones picked up the honour at a ceremony held at Los Angeles' Chateau Marmont hotel on Tuesday (02Oct12).

He also received $20,000 (£12,500), which he has donated to The Jazz Foundation of America.
