Heavily influenced simply by the brand new Orleans jazz tradition, Leroy Jones has honored his rich heritage even though wanting to expand his musical repertoire. He used trumpet when he became a member of his primary school’s music group. At 13, he became a member of guitarist Danny Barker’s Fairview Baptist Brass Music group, who also trained Jones privately. He spent four years in the city’s well-known St. Augustine SENIOR HIGH SCHOOL Music group. After graduating, he produced the Hurricane Brass Music group, which combined with the Fairview Music group provided skill for the Dirty Dozen Brass Music group. He toured Canada with Eddie “Cleanhead” Vinson and became a member of Della Reese, resulting in international concert travels that eventually led to Jones executing in Southeast Asia for the three-year extend. Recruited by Harry Connick, Jr. for his big music group, Jones was Connick’s starting action during his 1994 tour. He finally debuted to vital acclaim being a head in 1995 along with his Compact disc Mo’ Cream In the Crop.
