Slick Jones

An excellent accompanist, Slick Jones is most well-known for his period as an associate of Fat Waller’s Tempo. Jones used Fletcher Henderson briefly in 1934 and 1936 and toured and documented with Waller pretty frequently during 1936-41; he also documented with Gene Sedric, Don Redman, Lionel Hampton and Una Mae Carlisle through the period. After departing Fats, Jones caused Stuff Smith, Eddie South, Redman, Claude Hopkins, Hazel Scott and Don Byas amongst others. He used Gene Sedric’s combo on / off during 1946-54 and in addition worked a little with Sidney Bechet, Wilbur DeParis (1954-55) and Doc Cheatham. Slick Jones (who by no means led his personal record day) was energetic in to the 1960’s, using Eddie Durham and documenting with Eddie Barefield as past due as 1964.
