Electronic Press Kit JPJQ always surprises, excites, pleases and engages audiences with their blend of tradition, ingenuity, and joyful noise. Anchored by vocalist Julia Pinckney Jones and bassist/arranger Adam R Jones (Portland, OR), JPJQ Team Vancouver features Andrew R Smith and Max Ley, and JPJQ Team Portland adds Timothy Van Cleave and Alexander Margititch. This international quartet specializes in cross-genre, post-modern interpretations of popular songs and anthemic hits of the 70s, 80s, 90s and 2000s, pairing new arrangements in vintage styles with polished and tested classic jazz.
JPJQ's debut album, I Want Love, was released in 2016.
An enjoyable collection of unique singing, playing and inventive arrangements...
“Sweet Dreams (Are Made of This)” has a brilliant phrasing of the melody set to an
exceptional feel. The ensemble sounds great and the singing is fantastic.
- Jeff Williams, Kari-On Productions
The new album by JPJQ is full of lovely surprises! Julia Pinckney Jones' tribute to her
mother is touching and showcased in the sweetest song I Want Love - Julia shines in
this song! The musicians that are showcased are all top notch and enjoyable to listen
to.... It's hard to pick just one favourite!
