Julia Pinckney Jones Julia Pinckney Jones

Julia started singing classic jazz with her family at about age 12. After a lengthy detour through light opera, musical theatre, top 40, hard rock, disco, alt-country, R&B, reggae and neo-soul, she has taken all the best from her eclectic career and brought it back home. JPJQ feels like that joyful homecoming. Her voice is an unapologetic departure from the “smoky voiced” female crooners the jazz world has come to expect. She chooses to show off the power of her upper register, allowing her to create a strong, joyful sound that is influenced as much by Aretha as it is by Ella.

All About Jazz needs your support

All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
