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.

In addition to his own contemporary jazz group, Doug’s unique style of playing can also be heard with Top New England acts such as Steppin' Out as well as blues recording artist, Mark Nomad.
“Doug Jones is a skilled multi-instrumentalist and an accomplished songwriter who achieves a fluid interchange between melodic pop-jazz and straight ahead jazz...very entertaining”
— FRANK – JOHN HADLEY - DOWNBEAT MAGAZINE
Doug’s new CD, “Crossing Lines”, is a melodic, Contemporary / Smooth Jazz CD in the style of Dave Koz, Michael Lington and David Sanborn. The first two singles from the CD to go to National and International Smooth Jazz Radio stations are "Watching The Sunrise" and “1979”. All songs feature Jones on Alto and Tenor Saxophones and the track "One Flight South" features him on Flute.
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. 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.
