Description:

If there was one voice in Australian jazz more recognized than any other, it would be that of Vince Jones. Our leading vocalist, interpreter, trumpet player and composer has entertained and informed us for decades, and tonight he shares with us his special and enduring love for music for Valentines Day. Vince Jones' music includes original songs and beautiful contemporary versions of jazz standards. His themes are often love, injustice, peace and anti-greed. The heart of his work lies at the crossroads of Afro-American blues and the melodies of the Celtic folk tradition. The many musical experiences that have carefully shaped his world and his work make him the perfect voice for a love affair that has lasted a lifetime. Through Vince, Valentines becomes a metaphor for what all loves can share - the funny and moving experiences that make us want to keep loving. "I believe that all of your experiences affect who you are, how you think, speak and how you sing. You could say that my voice is a cacophony of the music, musicians, politics, mentors and philosophers that I've been lucky enough to have been introduced to. And if my voice is 'distinct', then I have to thank all of those people and experiences for helping me find my identity." - Vince Jones
