Zakk Jones Trio:

The Zakk Jones Trio is a dynamic group that fluidly blends styles as varied as modern jazz, americana/country and fusion, often even in the same songs. Between unique arrangements of classic songs/standards and original material, the trio brings any audience a fresh listening experience that’s filled with creative improvisations. In a given set you can hear everything from David Bowie to Herbie Hancock to Hank Williams to Randy Newman and much more.

The Trio has performed at venues/clubs like Bar Next Door (NYC), Bop Stop (Cleveland), Dick's Den (Columbus), Schwartz's Point Jazz & Acoustic Club (Cincinnati) Pausa Art House (Buffalo) Jimmy Can’t Dance (Louisville, KY), Radio Bean (Burlington, VT) and many more! The trio has recently played at the Denison Jazz Guitar Festival, Columbus Jazz & Ribs Festival, and was featured on the PBS show “Broad & High”. Their debut album “Mise-en-Scéne” was released in 2019 digitally, on CD and with a special release of Vinyl, produced and engineered by Grammy-award winning professionals and funded in part by the Greater Columbus Arts Council. Their latest EP is “In My Life”, showcasing their deep love for funk, fusion, and pop music. 2024 will see the release of two new records - “Why Not?” and “Tomorrow Comes Early”.
