Jonah Jones was called “the second Louis Armstrong” because of the quality of his expressive sound and constant inspiration. This, however, makes no full justice to his individual and personal talents. Jonah always played melodies with talent and inspiration and one never gets tired of listening to him. These recordings made in Nice Jazz Festival in 1978 find him performing alongside musicians who were up to his standards. Andre Persiani and Gerry Wiggins were among the pianists, the great trombonists Vic Dickenson and Wild Bill Davis, bassist Pierre Michelot or Oliver Jackson on drum. We could say that these sessions, recorded live, are ideal for those of us who love good jazz when it is simple and inspired.
