Melvin Jones – Pivot

The debut solo CD from Melvin Jones is a culmination of many years of performing with numerous greats in the jazz industry. ‘Pivot’ showcases Jones’ simmering style and his technical facility through original compositions that will captivate both newer listeners and long-standing fans.

“Pivot” is Jones’ first recording as a band leader, and nearly all of its compositions are original and self-written.

Says Jones, “The concept of ‘Pivot’ reflects my multidirectional experiences, and also the artists’ ability to perform diverse styles at one time. I am thrilled to have brought together for this album some of my favorite musicians who represent such a broad spectrum of creative talent. My fans can expect the jazz on ‘Pivot’ to include grooves of many different genres played by some of the premier performers in the industry.”
