Jinx Jones and Angeline Saris bring their jazz duo to Bird & Beckett. Both musicians are enthusiasts of the luxurious jazz guitar and bass duos of the hard bop and soul jazz era. This special event celebrates the instrumental stylings of artists like Grant Green, Wes Montgomery, Kenny Burrell, and Charlie Christian. Jinx and Angeline weave their sound together in jazz improvisation that draws from the golden era of the 20th century, while sounding advanced by todayâ€™s standards.
Jinx Jones has been twice nominated for Male Rockabilly Artist of the Year by the Ameripolitan Music Awards, has received gold and platinum record awards for his work with R&B divas, En Vogue, has won songwriting awards and has been recognized as one of the hottest acts on the San Francisco music scene. In Jinx Jonesâ€™ impressive musical career he has visited nearly every conceivable style and genre of the electric guitar. From his work Chuck Berry, Solomon Burke, and Roy Buchanan to his own acclaimed rockabilly albums, â€œLicense to Twang,â€ â€œRumble & Twang,â€ â€œRip and Run,â€ Live Twang in Finland.â€ And â€œTwang-Tastic!,â€ Jones has always strived to expand the possibilities of the instrument. He accepts every musical challenge head on, always making an impressive statement with his music. The one thing that remains consistent throughout Jonesâ€™ multi-stylistic journey is the grace and finesse of his virtuoso playing. www.jinxjones.com
Angeline Saris: One minute of Angelineâ€™s low-end thumping coming at you and youâ€™ll know she is just as much beast as beauty.Â She is a monstrous talent and has the schedule to prove it.Â In the last year alone, Angeline recorded 2 albums and toured with the Narada Michael Walden Band, rocked the stage with Santana when he joined Naradaâ€™s band at their most recent show, joined forces with reggae and ska legend Ernest Ranglin, laid down some serious shredding bass on Gretchen Mennâ€™s album Hale Souls (and works regularly as her touring bassist), recorded 4 instructional DVDâ€™s for Hal Leonard as well as a demo video for GHS strings, joined the all-female Led Zeppelin tribute band Zepparella and continues to moonlight as a hired gun in the studio and for local shows. www.angelinesaris.com
