What’s Now Playing On The Jukebox

The Jacques Jones Christmas Jam Sessions

For a time I lived, for many years, in another river city; Newport News, which is located on the Lower Peninsula; the Hampton Roads area.

The area is vibrant with musicians and artists that continues to astound me with their talents, their warmth, and graciousness.

This interview is with Mr. Jacques Jones, renowned bass player who, for many years, hosted an informal event where many musicians would join in a jam session held around Christmas at the home of Mr. Jones.

You can start listening to the four part interview HERE  and listen to the jam sessions in its entirety by clicking on the LP icon.

Rock out, folks…and the band Mr. Jones couldn’t remember at the time was called “Acquisition Funk”…didn’t want to leave you hanging!
