The Castlemaine Jazz Festival is excited to present 3 times ARIA Award-recipient Vince Jones and his Quintet.

Vince Jones, is celebrating his 50th year of a long applauded career as a singer, trumpeter and songwriter.

As a vocalist he resists showing off technique to the detriment of feel – he’s confident in his musical literacy and sings like there’s nothing to prove. It’s a refreshing approach that gives us, the audience, the chance to be really moved.

Vince Jones also plays trumpet and over the years his style has developed a distinctive reserve and subtlety – he plays a little less and draws a good deal more from it than he did in earlier days. A brief, thoughtful solo from Vince is worth a hundred notes played with less discretion.

He is a remarkable interpreter and composer of songs in a contemporary jazz style – a style that appeals equally to listeners and his musical peers.
