Ron Jones and the Jazz Forest
Wed, May 29 @ 7:00 pm
Jazz Forest taps into the roots of jazz — standards, straight-ahead, and bebop — as well as influences such as pop, funk and blues. Ron Jones brings together this forest of talent — each player a band leader on their own with extensive performing and recording credits — and shares his nearly 40 years of composing in Hollywood for shows such as Family Guy and Star Trek: The Next Generation. Ron has numerous awards including 5 Emmy nominations, one Grammy nomination and several ASCAP and BMI film and TV scoring awards.
This concert takes place in the Lucas Hicks Theater — the larger of Sylvia Center’s two theaters. This big band gets to spread out, we get to fill the house and enjoy!
