Doug Jones, a Connecticut native, expresses his passion for music through his compositions and performances. His career spans many years performing in different venues in the Northeast from the Hartford Jazz Festival to clubs in Newport, Manhattan and Boston as well as South America.
His saxophone influences are David Sanborn, Grover Washington, Tom Scott, Bobby Keys and Edgar Winter. In addition to his own contemporary jazz group, Doug’s unique style of playing can also be heard with Top New England bands as well as blues recording artist Mark Nomad.
Jones' latetest CD, "Secrets" has just been released. All ten tracks were writen and recorded by Doug Jones with the addition of Rick Handville on Guitars and Troy Slocum handling the final mixes and mastering. Gorov Music and Marketing will be taking care of radio promotion for the first single and title track, "Secrets." "Secrets" is already receiving stellar reviews and is sure to see many chart-breaking singles for some time to come.
Doug is a consummate wind instrument artist. He is equally good and diverse whether playing the alto, soprano or tenor saxophone as well as the flute, harmonica and wind synthesizer (EWI). He also writes all of his own compositions. The Doug Jones Group has shared the stage with Tower of Power, Marion Meadows, Bob Baldwin and many others. His dog logo comes from his love of Great Danes, especially his rescue Dane Jack. Doug Jones performs with a trio, 4-piece, or 5-piece group.
