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. Born in Florida in 1924, Jones started his career playing with Tiny Bradshaw , then after moving to New York, joining up with the groups of Kenny Dorham, Cannonball Adderley, Dizzy Gillespie, and Thelonious Monk. It would be with the Cannonball Adderley Quintet 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 .Jeremy Browns Quartet will pay homage to these legendary collaborations.
