Jones has to be the world’s most laid-back singer in a jazz style, relaxed, cool, and unhurried. His unique smooth vocals captivates the audience as he fills the lyrics with his obvious love of the songs. Working at a high level of excellence is this rare genre-defying artist who creates music without borders. A remarkable interpreter and composer of songs in a contemporary unique style, whilst remaining relevant and prolific as a songwriter, continuing to explore new musical terrains. Confident in his own musical style, he sings like there’s nothing to prove with his distinctive rich velvet voice and profound joy for the music.

Particular about the musical company he keeps, Jones continues to enjoy playing with some of the best musicians the country has to offer and his shows reflect the respect all involved have for the art form of music. Tonight he is joined by long time collaborator ~ Matt McMahon - Piano / MD * Karl Dunnicliff - Double Bass * John Mackey - Tenor Sax and James Hauptmann on Drums.



Jones continues to be invited to grace many stages Oz wide, Headlining major arts festivals and frequently invited by conservatoriums around the country to mentor tomorrow's up and coming music students.

Australia’s leading jazz vocalist, Vince Jones, is a remarkable interpreter and composer of songs in a contemporary jazz style – a style that appeals equally to listeners and his musical peers. As a vocalist he resists showing off technique to the detriment of feel – he’s confident in his musical literacy and sings like there’s nothing to prove. It’s a refreshing approach that gives us, the audience, the chance to be really moved. Vince Jones also plays trumpet and over the years his style has developed a distinctive reserve and subtlety – he plays a little less and draws a good deal more from it than he did in earlier days. A brief, thoughtful solo from Vince is worth a hundred notes played with less discretion.

Each melody transporting the listener beyond a world of care and woes to the sweet meditation of music and song. His trade-mark voice is a tenor of light sweetness, flowing so easily through the music - this band swings soothes and bathes you in warmth.

Born in Glasgow, Vince and his family came to live in Australia when he was 11 years old. He grew up in Wollongong, NSW, listening to his musician father’s collection of great jazz albums, and the feel, style and essence of the music became a natural part of Vince’s world. Starting his jazz performance journey as a bebop trumpet player, the young man had no idea that in 10 years, then 20 years – his superb voice would touch the hearts and minds of many listeners – in Australia and beyond. At 20, Vince began playing the club circuit in Melbourne. He was drawn to R&B music – a genre in which the emotive force of the voice is matched by technical and improvising skills. To a young man steeped in creativity and blessed with a sweet golden voice – it was natural to meld these elements together and so began the evolution of one of Australia’s great vocalists.
