After a six-month stint with Jazz at Lincoln Center, he was named by Wynton Marsalis to lead his band on trumpet. Having been featured on jazz legend Nancy Wilson's GRAMMY Award winning album, “Turned to Blue”, Jones' went on to record his eighth release, “Live From Jazz At The Bistro,” which critics raved about: “captures the live, ‘raw’ feel of jazz and Jones’ special connection to the audience.”
Possessing exceptional versatility, Jones has performed with numerous notable ensembles and musicians, including Tia Fuller, Gerald Wilson, Joe Lovano, Tom Harrell, Jon Faddis, Jimmy Heath and Frank Foster. For several years Jones was a member of the SF JAZZ Collective and was lead trumpeter with the Lincoln Center Jazz Orchestra.
