Dave Jones Quartet
Quartet led by Welsh pianist and composer Dave Jones and featuring Lee Goodall (reeds), Ashley John Long (bass) and Lloyd Haines (drums).
The 2012 album “Resonance” also includes guest appearances from Tomos Williams & Gethin Liddington (trumpets & flugel), Gareth Roberts (trombone), Kevin Lawlor (drums) and the Mavron String Quartet.
"A carefully crafted recording that features Jones' melodic, intelligent writing and arrangements plus some excellent playing from all the members of the ensemble. "
"Ian Mann enjoys a performance by the Dave Jones Quartet and takes a look at their new album "Live at AMG 2014"."
"The quartet’s efforts were warmly appreciated by a decent sized crowd on a very chilly October night. "
"An excellent night of music that was firmly in the jazz tradition but still convincingly forward looking."
