Clarence Jazz Festival 2024
Frogmore Jazz Lounge Presents The Vince Jones Quintet
Australia’s legendary leading Jazz vocalist and three-time ARIA-award recipient, Vince Jones gives us two sets of simply world class jazz, joined by a legendary band.
As one of Australia’s premier exponents of Jazz – an evening with Vince promises to be a night of musical indulgence. Audiences will enjoy his smooth, velvet voice, as he performs his much loved original material such as Trustworthy little Sweethearts as well as new contemporary interpretations of his favourite jazz standards by other greats such as Ray Charles, Donny Hathaway and Curtis Mayfield.
With a career now in its 40th year of performing, Jones has a catalogue of 22 albums, ARIA awards amongst others, and has sold close to a million records worldwide. Including his iconic ‘Come in Spinner’ soundtrack, the highest selling Australian Jazz album of all time.
Always particular about the musical company he keeps, he’s enjoyed playing with the best musicians the country has to offer and for these concerts the tradition continues with the exceptional Matt McMahon on Piano, Ben Robertson on Double Bass, Felix Bloxsom drums and John Mackey on Tenor Saxophone.
“A magical performance by Vince Jones, who now has one of the Best in a long line of exceptional bands” Sydney Morning Herald
“Vince Jones is living proof that independence is not about genres …. He’s a soulful survivor, with a voice as cool as a long G&T and a repertoire that balances jazz, rock and soul.” Beat Magazine.
“His phrasing and interpretation are second to none. His voice remains distinctive and endlessly interesting, contrasting and blending with the gorgeous sound of the band.” InDaily.
