Scott Jones Scott Jones

I'm really (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 :

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.
