Grammy Award-winning singer Jack Jones is the very definition of a complete and total entertainer. The New York Times has hailed him as “arguably the most technically accomplished male pop singer”. Born in Hollywood to actors Allan Jones and Irene Hervey, his first break came in 1959 when a demo he recorded for songwriter Don Raye found its way to Capitol Records. While with the label, he released his first album which included the single, “This Could Be The Start Of Something Big”. He then signed on with Kapp Records before moving to RCA Records six years later. As his career gained momentum, Jones developed a deep appreciation for well-constructed songs that also had emotional appeal. His respect for songs that told stories with meaning and beauty led him to record works by the greatest balladeers of all time including Sammy Cahn, Cole Porter and Alan & Marilyn Bergman. He was also inspired by such jazz instrumentalists as Gerry Mulligan, Buddy Rich and Count Basie.
Jones’ talent and commitment to his art earned him two Grammys for “Best Male Pop Vocal Performance” with his singles, “Lollipops and Roses” (1962) and “Wives and Lovers” (1963). His additional hits include “Dear Heart” (1964), “The Race Is On” (1965), “The Impossible Dream” (1966) and “What I Did For Love” (1975). In addition to a successful recording career, his impressive credits include roles in such films as Juke Box Rhythm, The Comeback and Cruise of the Gods, an internationally syndicated TV variety show and performances at Carnegie Hall, the Kennedy Center and the White House. He also recorded popular theme songs for film and TV including the theme for ABC’s hit series, The Love Boat. With over 50 recorded albums – seventeen of which charted on Billboard’s Top 20 – and consistently sold-out world tours, he continues to charm audiences with his wit, sensitivity and vocal power. Jack Jones will be performing for one night only at the River Rock Casino Resort on May 9, 2014.
