“Jones Attacks each song with the vigor of a wildcatter yet maintains a dusky under current that drips with sensuality” Jazz Times Reviewer – Christopher Loudon

CELEBRATING TEN YEARS! Carolyn Lee Jones always wanted to be a singer and burst on to the music scene. After a successful career in retailing, she launched her singing career. Sophisticated vocal jazz is what she does making standards sound new and the new sound standard. An audio calling card and the perfect representation of who she is and the stellar musicians in her band. Classic Jazz and Vintage Pop with a jazz twist is what makes her unique and her Fresh Vintage Band makes it happen!

Carolyn’s eclectic vocal repertoire includes; vintage pop songs into the jazz context, sultry ballads, renditions of the familiar jazz standards from the Great American Songbook, new material, as well as other popular music. A vocal stylist with a gift for telling the story, Miss Jones has created and performed a series of themed Cabaret jazz shows and was honored as Sammons Center For The Arts Cabaret Artist of the Year 2017.
