Salena Jones Quartet

Please note: Info provided by the Event Organiser

Rare opportunity to see and hear World-renowned Singer and her Quartet of elite musicians.

Salena Jones
A superb singer who effortlessly delivers the lyrics with grace, charm and innate swing - Ronnie Scott`s

Infinitely versatile, she swings from jazz standards to more intimate
material, Americas loss is Britain;s gain ….” - The Times

New York`s world travelled charmer is one of the best jazz-meets-
cabaret singers in the business - Daily Telegraph

“Jones is pure class” – The Times

"Disciples who hung on her every sound at Ronnie Scott's for years know just what the velvet voice can do to jazz, blues, ballads and pop" - Evening Standard


Regularly described by critics as one of the world`s great jazz singers
and, occasionally as “not altogether a jazz singer”, Salena Jones is
almost impossible to categorise. The attraction lies in her voice quality
pure and simple. Salena Jones` cool, relaxed phrasing and delivery is
wonderfully free from artifice.

At the lower end of the register, her voice is smoky and sensual; not for
her, though, vivacious displays of double-time gymnastics or virtuoso
scat choruses; she is a storyteller who allows the lyrics to speak for
themselves and although ballads are her strongest suit, she swings with the very best.

Salena's outstanding career now spans seven decades of performance;she has sung with numerous music legends around the world including Louis Armstrong, Antonio Carlos Jobim and Sarah Vaughan as well as the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra.

To date, Salena has made forty-three solo albums and twenty-two
singles. She is totally comfortable in diverse styles that she makes her
own: blues, jazz standards, pop, latin, big band and orchestral are all in
her repertoire.

Now that Ella, Sarah, Billie and Dinah are gone there is but a very small number of swinging singers truly in the same mould as those legends. Salena…
