Label: Capitol Records - T-963 • Format: Vinyl LP, Album, Mono • Country: US • Genre: Jazz •
Reference: BMCD He found a successful formula and used it to brighten the hit charts with a succession of bouncy albums on Capitol Records. His quartet was one of the three newcomers in the Top 10 wide variety of small groups listed in the favorite Instrumental Billboard lists in Jonah Jones and his quartet give here the aftertheater treatment to hits from famous Broadway musicals. Jones familiar, swinging trumpet and rhythm section infuse the songs with his own spirited style, and the whole set is swingy, for either listening or dancing.
All in Jones own brand of mostly muted jazz trumpetrich, mellow and stimulating. Jonah Jones never attempts to break out of his formula of tight swinging arrangements that leave the listener in no doubt as to what hes about.
I didnt realise till I researched this album how long Jones had been around. He was born inso had been round the block more than a few times before he got his big chance with Capitol. There was no way he was going to waste it by being experimental. He realised that the public wanted to be entertained, and wanted something to dance to and he gave Hey There - The Jonah Jones Quartet - Swingin On Broadway to them. Ill be taking a leaf out of his book when I play the Caveau de la Huchette in Paris later this year.
So thank you Jonah Jones. Most readily associated with Alan Barnes, he is in demand for a host of bands of varied sizes and styles.
With shuffling support from pianist George Rhodes, bassist John Brown and drummer Harold Austin, Jones was able to make a lucrative living playing and singing music that did not differ much from what he Inna - Gimme Gimme (Electric Bodega Remix) (File) have been performing anyway.
