5. Vince Jones

Those lucky enough to have seen and heard Vince Jones over the years will appreciate the value in his performances. He cut his chops on the Australian jazz music scene in the late ‘70s, and with 20 albums under his belt, he now sets the benchmark for others.

His sensitive treatment and interpretation of other composers’ work makes him a delight to listen to, and his unabashed comments on the state of the world leave the listener with something to ponder.

Vince Jones is also a wonderful trumpet player. He works with the best jazz musicians Australia has to offer and this evening will be no exception. Expect to lose yourself in a cocoon of sound. Come and experience Vince Jones perform live!
