Scott Jones

I'm really fortunate...music (playing, writing, recording, arranging) is all I do for a living...

My instrument is guitar, but I compose at the keyboard, play drums and bass (started as a drummer)......and arrange professionally for just about every instrument......

My main musical styles are fusion, jazz, prog, blues...but I play just about everything, not to limit myself...

My influences are very diverse, but fusion being the main thing: Scott Henderson, Mike Landau, Pat Metheny being the main ones...

I taught guitar and theory privately for 4 years from 1992-1996, going to students homes...

In 2002, I was very fortunate to have my CD “released” on Allan Holdsworth's label, Gnarly Geezer Records...

From that release, I received some great feedback from Steve Vai, Brett Garsed, Derryl Gabel, Shane Theriot, Greg Koch, Rusty Cooley...

In 2003, I switched labels and was officially signed to Progressive Arts Music, and re-released the C.D. in October 2003.

For this re-release, I went back into the studio and wrote 3 bonus tracks, and beefed up the guitar parts and the overall mix, making it a much better disc...(I also enhanced the C.D. with about 80 minutes of bonus mp3s in CD-ROM format, and 3 live video clips)

I was very fortunate to have released this new version to some very encouraging reviews...

I have recently confirmed my line up for my next C.D. to be released late summer 2005 :
