"Jones world journey is far from over, in fact it’s only just beginning.
Yet with Closed For The Holidays you can’t help but feel he’s arrived anyway.
Greg Philips, Editor Australian Musician Magazine"
After two impressive releases over the past five years, premier Australian bassist/composer Wayne Jones’ brand new album, CLOSED FOR THE HOLIDAYS has just arrived, and it features his best work yet. Using a food analogy, the six tracks on this new CD are like a gourmet recipe… sophisticated but not stuffy, incredibly tasty, creating so much contentment going down that you’ll absolutely want to prepare it time and time again. You’d be hard-pressed to name a favorite tune, as every one of his originals is incredibly delicious. Mr. Jones really wanted to expand his sound on this project, so he invited trumpeter Rick Braun and saxman Mike MacArthur to guest. Excellent choices! Wayne’s excited about the possibilities involved in taking CLOSED FOR THE HOLIDAYS to the World, and says, “I really have a great feeling about this one. I feel like I have arrived.” Indeed you have, mate. This is the one! ~SCOTT O’BRIEN www.smoothjazz.com
