Me and Mr Jones ….
Saxophonist/composer who works with a wide range of his own projects and collaborations in the UK and internationally. Co leader of acclaimed Killer Shrimp mixing dance genres and electronica with acoustic jazz.
He has performed with George Benson, Dianne Reeves, Horace Silver, Clifford Jarvis and Dr Lonnie Smith and is a regular band member of US3 and Incognito.
”A formidable saxophonist. Ed Jones may have hit his highest profile through his work with bands US3 and Incognito, but he’s an improviser to his fingertips, a player of forceful imagination, and one of the Uk’s most distinctive saxophonists.” John Fordham The Guardian.
”The Vigorous, sometimes downright volcanic tenor sound of Ed Jones has long been one of the great live delights of British Jazz. His barnstorming ‘terrier with a rat’ approach raises the musics temperature whenever he solos“. Chris Parker, Jazzwise.
“One of the most fluent and forceful saxophonists in Europe” Jack Massarik Evening Standard
