WORLD-RENOWNED SALENA JONES

 

Rare opportunity to see and hear one of the acknowledged great interpreters of song with her terrific jazz quartet in this intimate setting.

 

Salena Jones` career has spanned the world working with a who's who of legends. Impressively, she has released 43 albums to date.

 

Jones` cool, relaxed phrasing and delivery is wonderfully free from artifice. At the lower end of the register, her voice is smoky and sensual. Not for her, though, vivacious displays of double-time gymnastics or virtuoso scat choruses; she is a storyteller who allows the lyrics to speak for themselves and although ballads are her strongest suit, she swings with the very best.

 

Almost impossible to categorise; the attraction lies in her voice quality pure and simple. She is totally comfortable in diverse styles that she makes completely her own: blues, jazz standards, pop and latin.

 

Born Joan Shaw in Virginia, she grew up in New York around legendary musicians like Miles Davis and Stan Getz, recording demo tracks for artists like Peggy Lee and Lena Horne, and released 15 records before she was 15 years old.

 

Growing racial tensions prompted a move to Europe and saw her name-change to Salena Jones, with fans across the world recognising her, to quote her Asian fanbase, as "The Queen of Jazz and Blues". Jones still holds the record for the longest residency at Ronnie Scott's, a remarkable seven weeks, where she regularly still sells out.
