Peter Jones is a jazz singer equally at home with bebop or ballads and we welcome him to Googlies for the first time. His three albums have all received excellent reviews and in their review of ‘Under the Setting Sun’, London Jazz News said ‘The level of creativity and skill on offer makes this a valuable and important collection for anyone remotely interested in contemporary jazz singing and songwriting’.
Peter is also a talented biographer and his 2018 book ‘This is Hip’, a biography of the American jazz singer Mark Murphy, has been widely praised and nominated for the 2019 Association for Recorded Sound Collections Awards for Excellence in Historical Recorded Sound Research.
Peter has recorded and performed with some of the top names in British jazz, including Roger Beaujolais, Andrew Cleyndert, Duncan Eagles, Leon Greening, Andy Hamill, Alex Hutton, Anthony Kerr, Mornington Lockett, Henry Lowther, Misha Mullov-Abbado, Nigel Price and Vasilis Xenopoulos, and he recently performed with both the Remix Jazz Orchestra and the Somethin’ Else Big Band.
Several videos of his performances can be viewed on his website.
Peter will be accompanied by the Googlies Quartet: Bill Yeomans (saxophones and flute), Hilary Cameron (piano), Dominic Bentham (bass) and John Jarvis (drums).
