Claire Jones trained as a classical pianist and singer at the Guildhall School of Music. She went on to develop a fine and original jazz voice, with an ear for jazz language and a warm personal style. As well as singing with her own band and with a female close harmony jazz group, Claire guests for numerous jazz line-ups in the region. One reviewer has written “she uses a wide range of vocal gymnastics and can scat effectively and musically too, a trick only the most vocally blessed can achieve.” Claire Jones vocals, Dorothy Shaw piano, Lawrie Wright bass, Jim Wade drums
