Saunders Jones Jr

About Me

Born in Atlanta, Georgia, raised in Birmingham Alabama, BS from UGA, Redcoat Band and Jazz Ensemble four years; MD degree from MCG, Residency at MCG in Orthopedic Surgery, involved in local Big Band there as well as rock and roll bands, Fellowship in Hand and Microsurgery and Asst Professor @UAB playing sax during all of this. Orthopedic Surgeon by training, a Jazz player since the 4th grade, Dr Jones is now retired and playing around north Georgia. He plays in several big bands around Atlanta as well as a combo and Dixieland. He is now fully retired from teaching. He taught in the graduate nursing program in the Wellstar School of Nursing at Kennesaw State University and taught Pathophysiology. My sound and approach to music: Whatever makes me feel good...musical and melodic.....not too out of the box....really old guy stuff I usually sneak up on it� sounds kinda like garbage cans falling over. Plays with the Peachtree Jazz Edition, Etowah Jazz Society, Big BandContractors, Atlanta Brass Cats, GaState Jazz Ensemble as well as subs in other bands as needed. He has produced 5 CD's with the EJS Big Band, 2 with the Big Band Contractors (another in progress) and has been on other CD's as sideman.
