JONES ~ he’s cool ~ he’s smooth ~ he’s one of Australia’s premier exponents of JAZZ!!
Vince is that rare genre-defying artist who creates music without borders. Jones is a remarkable interpreter and composer of songs in a contemporary unique style. Confident in his own musical style, he sings like there’s nothing to prove! With His distinctive warm, rich-like-velvet voice, known for his unique trade-mark style, Jones has remained relevant – prolific as a songwriter – and continues to explore new musical terrains. His stage passion and voice are as fresh and alive as the first day he hit the stage.
With a career now in its 40th year of performing; Jones has a catalogue of 22 albums, ARIA awards and has sold close to a million albums worldwide. He is often invited to mentor the next generation of Jazz musicians at Conservatoriums around Australia.
As a man who thinks deeply about the state of the world and our need to get back to a simpler way of living, themes of love, loss, injustice nature and peace are woven through his original works.
An evening with Vince Jones is a musical indulgence. He performs original material as well as new contemporary interpretations of his favourite jazz standards by other greats, such as Ray Charles, Donny Hathaway and Curtis Mayfield.
His creative output remains intense – new music with long-time collaborator, Paul Grabowki, is due in 2023 while his 2020 retrospective, ‘A Personal Selection’ confirmed how important his contribution to Australian music has been.
Always particular about the musical company he keeps, he’s enjoyed playing with the best musicians the country has to offer.
“A magical performance by Vince Jones, who now has one of the Best in a long line of exceptional bands”. SMH
