Jinx Jones Jazz Trio
jazz live streamed from the bookshop
every Friday evening

Jinx returns to Glen Park, hot on the heels of his trio date across the bay at Piedmont Piano, with Kenan O’Brien on bass and Ken Owen on drums. Sure, he’s a rockabilly star, but he’s also devoted to the pioneering work of Charlie Christian and the jazz guitar styles of Wes Montgomery, Grant Green, Kenny Burrell and other classic masters of the 1940s, ’50s and ’60s.  https://www.jinxjones.com/gallery

“Jinx Jones can indeed dazzle. Jones comps while launching melodic lines in a repertoire consisting of standards by Montgomery, Kessel, Lionel Hampton, and Benny Goodman, with his original ‘Alise’ lending a Latin mood. Most impressive is Jones’ arrangement of Miles Davis’ ‘So What,’ mixing percussive rhythm, single-note passages, and octaves in the modal masterpiece.” Dan Forte, Vintage Guitar Magazine, 2018.
