Australia's leading jazz vocalist, Vince Jones, is also a remarkable interpreter and composer of songs in a contemporary jazz style - a style that appeals equally to listeners and his musical peers. As a vocalist he resists showing off technique to the detriment of feel - hes 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.
