Biography

An underrated cool-toned guitarist who sounds at his best in straight-ahead settings, Rodney Jones had his highest visibility during his period with Dizzy Gillespie (1976-1979), when he was in his early twenties. Jones had previously worked with Jaki Byard and recorded with Chico Hamilton, and he would follow the association with Gillespie by working for a time as Lena Hornes accompanist. As a leader, Jones has recorded for Timeless (in 1978 and 1981), the RR label, and in the late 80s for Minor Music. Read more on Last.fm.
