Yeah that track doesn't have any tacky sample stabs. Perhaps there were different guys working on it. Someone said earlier they had full teams on these tracks..
Wikipedia goes into detail about who made what bits.. quite interesting..

And then, I cannot imagine that Quincy Jones did all the mixing & mastering himself...
Furthermore, there was MUCH money involved. When Michael Jackson wanted a REAL church choir, they didn't use a Mellotron for it but indeed a REAL choir!
