Peter Jones is a well-established jazz singer based in London. He gigs regularly at jazz clubs there and throughout the south-east. His three albums to date have received excellent reviews, with tracks played on Jazz FM and several other stations.
London Jazz News said of his 2017 album Under the Setting Sun: ‘The level of creativity and skill on offer makes this a valuable and important collection for anyone remotely interested in contemporary jazz singing and songwriting.’
Peter has worked with some of the top names in British jazz, including Roger Beaujolais, Henry Lowther, Mornington Lockett, Nigel Price, Misha Mullov-Abbado, Duncan Eagles, Alex Hutton and Vasilis Xenopoulos.
