Scott Jones

My name is Scott Jones. I’ve been a full time pro musician (guitarist, composer, arranger) for about 4 decades, residing in the St. Louis area.

My contemporary jazz album “Fictional Characters” is released in association with Michael Silverman and Autumn Hill Records.

Featuring myself as composer and guitarist, along with musicians Steve Hunt, (long time keyboardist for the late guitar legend Allan Holdsworth), as well as drummer Archibald Ligonnière and bassist Romain Labaye, (both of whom have been renowned guitarist Scott Henderson’s band* on his recent tours and latest album “People Mover”, *which was just voted Best Jazz Fusion Group by Jazz Times Magazine’s 2020 Reader’s Poll). My project reflects the long arc of classic fusion that has influenced my career. Calling on the gods from the realms of Scofield, Henderson, Corea, I attempt to do so without aping any of them, and hopefully create a fresh take on the genre for both new listeners, and long-time lovers of fusion.

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded albums and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, limited reopenings 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 step that will help musicians and venues 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 sticky footer ad). Thank you!
