Cameron Jones Trio
Cameron Jones is a Sydney based musician who draws inspiration from the driving rhythms and melodic honesty of the acoustic gypsy jazz guitar. He performs regularly with prominent Sydney bands; The Spyglass Gypsies and Gadjo Guitars and vocalist and bassist, Paul Sun. Jones is also the Creative Director of the Brisbane based OzManouche Festival. Australia’s only festival dedicated to gypsy jazz.
The Waterfall Way is Jones’s first album under his own name and draws repertoire and inspiration from his travels to France and The Netherlands over a period of 5 years where he was able to discover the very source and origins of the music.
