Jazz is alive in South Florida and Jesse Jones Jr. is here to prove it. The Miami native is a saxophonist extraordinaire and continues to be on the forefront of a burgeoning jazz renaissance in South Florida. Jesse and his brother, Melton Mustafa, who is one of the great trumpet players of our time has been a running force in music for many years. Jesse Jones Jr. is one of those hidden treasures that you canât help but to share with the world. Jesse overwhelms you with his infectious positive attitude and dynamic stage presence.
Jesse Jones Jr. attended Mississippi Valley State College where he excelled in music, but his journey actually started in Miami where as a young kid he would listen to a neighbor practice his sax while playing along with Cannonball Adderley albums. âI loved that sound and knew right then I was going to be a musician for the rest of my lifeâ. After college Jones joined the military and became a member of the US Navy Show Band. He traveled throughout North and South America where he was given the opportunity to develop his showmanship skills. Besides playing the sax, clarinet and flute, Jesse sang, tap dance and did comedy skits, and found that he had a natural gift for getting the crowd to become part of him. âI just love to perform and make people feel good and satisfied with what theyâre hearing and seeingâ. After serving out his four year term in the military, Jesse lived in Boston for a while, then back to his home town Miami, where he signed with Fantasy Records in 1996 and produced his first CD titled âSoul Serenadeâ.
Through the many years of performing, music has treated me well. I have performed with Donald Byrd, Blue Mitchell, Dexter Gordon, Joe Williams, Dee Dee Bridgewater, Clark Terry, Allan Harris, Ira Sullivan, Melton Mustafa, to name a few.
Jesse's Quartet or whether forming a quintet with his brother Melton, brings brilliant ensemble work and always top quality music. The arrangements are intricate... an indication of the many years these musicians have been together as a unit. They know each other well and it shows. A phenomenal reed player, Jesse is technically superior on the alto, soprano and baritone saxophone, as well as flute. He combines the hard-bop influence of Cannonball Adderley, the funk of Hank Crawford, and the sweetness of Paul Desmond. Their influences may be detected within Jesse's riffs.
Add to that some of the most unusual "scat" jazz singing when Jesse sings "straight" or through his horns, and the jazz audiences go wild. The humor is international in scope since these are not words but rather sounds that move and groove with the music. The Jesse Jones Jr. Quartet puts on a show audiences remember for a long time.
In addition to working with his own quartet, Jesse gigs with other performers and other bands as a free-lancer. His ability to captivate the audience with the classics, and adapt them to his own swinging interpretations, is legendary.
âI can only thank God for His blessings. And with the love and encouragement of my wife Thelma, family, friends and incredible fans, my heart will continue to pour out the music that we love so well.
