Vince Jones' Website
Vincent Hugh Jones (born 24 March 1954) is an Australian jazz artist. He is a singer, songwriter, and trumpet and flugelhorn player. His music includes both original material and new contemporary versions of jazz standards. His themes are often love, inequity, injustice, peace and anti-greed.
Vincent Hugh Jones was born on 24 March 1954 in Paisley, Scotland. He is the second eldest of four children to John Jones and Mary (neé Docherty); the family moved to Australia in April 1964 and lived in Wollongong. He attributes his love of jazz to hearing Miles Davis's album, Sketches of Spain, when he was about 14 and taught himself to play the trumpet. Jones began his career in 1974 in New South Wales as a bebop trumpet player on the club and jazz circuit.
In November 1981 Jones recorded his debut album, Watch What Happens, with John Bye producing at Richmond Recorders in Melbourne. Adrian Jackson of Jazz magazine touted Jones as the "new Melbourne jazz star" in June 1982.
