"A world-ranked singer; infinitely versatile, she swings from jazz standards to more intimate material. America's loss is Britain's gain ….” - The Times Arts

Regularly described by critics as one of the world`s great jazz singers and, occasionally as “not altogether a jazz singer”, Salena Jones is almost impossible to categorise. The attraction lies in her voice quality pure and simple.

Salena's outstanding career now spans seven decades of performance; she has worked with numerous music legends around the world including Louis Armstrong, Antonio Carlos Jobim and Sarah Vaughan and, to date, has made forty-three solo albums and twenty'-two singles.

Salena Jones` cool, relaxed phrasing and delivery is wonderfully free from artifice. At the lower end of the register, her voice is smoky and sensual. Not for her, though, vivacious displays of double-time gymnastics or virtuoso scat choruses; she is a storyteller who allows the lyrics to speak for themselves and although ballads are her strongest suit, she swings with the very best.

She is totally comfortable in diverse styles that she makes her own: blues, jazz standards, pop, latin, big band and orchestral are all in her repertoire.

Appearing in Chelsea with her Trio of elite musicians.
