Sam Jones

Born:

Sam Jones was a solid jazz bassist with impeccable technique, who could also swing and groove with the best of them. Most associated with his tenures with Cannonball Adderley, and then Oscar Peterson, he also went on to front his own bands and left a reputable recorded legacy as a leader. Sam Jones was born in Florida on Nov. 12, 1924, starting his career playing in local bands. By 1953 he was playing with Tiny Bradshaw , then after moving to New York in 1955 he joined up with the groups of Kenny Dorham, Cannonball Adderley, Dizzy Gillespie, and Thelonious Monk. But it would be with the Cannonballs Adderley Quintet, from 1959 to 1966, where he would establish his reputation. Paired up with stellar drummer Louis Hayes, in what has proven to be a benchmark rhythm section for being “in the pocket.” There have been few better. He also did solo projects during the early sixties and released some fine sides for Riverside, where he was able to stretch out on some of his cello oriented pieces. Jones went on to replace Ray Brown in the Oscar Peterson Trio in from 1966 to 1970

Evan Sherman: Not Just A Throwback

Read "Evan Sherman: Not Just A Throwback" reviewed by David A. Orthmann

Throughout Sidewalkin', Sherman's self-produced recording from 2021, and a recent live performance at the Madison Community Arts Center in Madison, NJ, these influences are perceptible, ...

Read "From George Coleman to Meeco: Ten Overlooked Classics" reviewed by Chris May

There are simply ten, randomly selected albums, recorded in the US and Europe between 1953 and 2021, which show jazz off at its finest, but which, for one reason or ...
