Tony Jones

Born:

Tony was raised in a musical family (his grandfather was the noted composer Leon René and his father the drummer Rick Jones), and the piano was his first instrument. He took on the drums in high school and is primarily known on that instrument. He has been a vocalist since his teens and has chosen to illustrate that skill on this CD. Tony is also a master of vocal impersonations. His Louis "Satchmo" Armstrong is well known and has a prominent place on this recording. Tony sings two of Leon's tunes: When It's Sleepytime Down South was Satchmo's theme song, and Mr. Satchmo is a tribute. Leon and Louis were friends who grew up in New Orleans at the same time

Tony Jones: Pitch, Rhythm, and Consciousness

Read "Pitch, Rhythm, and Consciousness" reviewed by Matt Marshall


On this ruminative record--and, indeed, it is a record, released primarily on vinyl, with MP3 downloads available--saxophonist Tony Jones, violinist Charles Burnham and percussionist Kenny Wollesen show themselves wholly comfortable within the quiet sonic space about them.

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded albums and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, limited reopenings and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary step that will help musicians and venues now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the sticky footer ad). Thank you!
