Jon LaTona

Jon LaTona is originally from Buffalo, NY. He took up the electric bass at the age of 12 and started gigging profesionally at the age of 15. He began his curiousity with jazz by taking bass lessons with James Kurzdorfer, the original bassist of Spyra Gyra.

He later then went to the University of the Arts in Philadelphia where he gained a better understanding of the jazz under the mentorship of Jim Paxson, Tony Miceli, Kevin MacConnell, Steve Beskrone and others.

After graduation, Jon went to LA to pursue studio work where he developed working relationships with Peter Malick (Norah Jones), Butch Norton (Lucinda Williams) and great up and coming singer-songwriter Patrick Joseph.
