    Born in Hollywood, California, on the night his singer/movie star father, Allan Jones, recorded his hit, "Donkey Serenade".  JACK JONES would make his famous parents (his mother was the elegant '30's actress Irene Hervey) especially proud of their award-winning son for the diversity and breadth of his talent. Jones attended University High School in West Los Angeles, while also studying drama and singing with private teachers chosen by his father.

     

    His first break came when a demo he recorded for songwriter Don Raye found its way to Capitol Records. While with the label he recorded a few singles and an album, which he admits was mediocre.

     

    Although he eventually left Capitol, one gem from his album, THIS COULD BE THE START OF SOMETHINH BIG, caught the attention of a San Francisco club owner who booked him for a three week run at Facks. While performing there, he was discovered by Pete King, a producer and artist for Kapp Records who quickly signed him to the label.

     

    As his career gained momentum, Jones developed a deep appreciation for well constructed songs that also have emotional appeal. His respect for songs that tell stories with meaning and beauty led him to record works by the greatest balladeers of all time: Sammy Cahn, Jimmy Van Heusen, Cole Porter, the Gershwins, Harold Arlen, Michel Legrand and Alan & Marilyn Bergman. He was inspired by great Jazz instrumentalists he discovered during his teen years such as Gerry Mulligan, Clark Terry, Buddy Rich, Bob Brookmeyer, Dave Pell Octet, Marty Paiche Dectet, Shorty Rogers and the Giants, and Count Basie.

     

    Jones' talent and commitment to his art earned him two Grammy's for "Best Pop Male Vocal Performance" with his singles "Lollipops and Roses" by Anthony Velona and Bacharach/David's "Wives and Lovers". His latest release, JACK JONES PAINTS A TRIBUTE TO TONY BENNETT, was nominated for "Best Traditional Pop Vocal Performance". He was also nominated for THE IMPOSSIBLE DREM. His hit records include "The Race is On," "Lady,"THE RACE IS ON, "Call Me Irresponsible," and "What I Did For Love." On April 13, 1989, he was honored with his own star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame, close to where his father's star is located.

     

    With over 50 recorded albums (17 of them chanting Billboard's Top 20) and consistently sold-out world tours, Jack Jones continues to charm audiences with his wit, sensitivity and vocal power. In addition to a successful recording career, Jones' impressive credits include film and television roles; an internationally syndicated TV variety show; guest performances at Carnegie Hall, the Kennedy Center, and the White House. He has also performed and later recorded popular theme songs for film and TV ("Love with a Proper Stranger," "The Love Boat").

     

    On his latest release for Honest Entertainment, Jack Jones PAINTS A TRIBUTE TO TONY BENNETT, Jones pays homage to a friend and an American icon. He counts Bennett among those vocalists who most influenced his style (a small but elite group that includes Mel Torme, Sammy Davis Jr., Billy Eckstien, and Frank Sinatra). Professional relationship aside, Jones and Bennett have been friends since their meeting at Chicago's Palmer House Hotel in the late 60's when Jones attended the last show of Bennett's engagement at the Empire Room, before opening in the same room the following night.

     

    Of his tribute album, which features some of Bennett's signature songs, Jones says, "This album is my way or saying thanks to a dear friend, " In selecting songs for this album, he chose three of his personal Bennett favorites, "Skylark," "Shadow Of Your Smile" and "You Must Believe In Spring."

     

    Today, Jack can be found performing concerts to sold-out audiences around the globe at performing arts centers, casinos, symphony halls and even intimate cabarets. Jones’ musical perfection and vocal passion unfailingly illustrate why he stands with the luminaries.
