Etta Jones

An understated, dynamic singer within jazz and popular standards, Etta Jones was an excellent singer always worth hearing. She grew up in New York and at 16, toured with Buddy Johnson. She debuted on record with Barney Bigard's pickup band (1944) for Black & White, singing four Leonard Feather songs, three of which (including "Evil Gal Blues") were hits for Dinah Washington. She recorded other songs during 1946-1947 for RCA and worked with Earl Hines (1949-1952). Jones' version of "Don't Go to Strangers" (1960) was a hit and she made many albums for Prestige during 1960-1965. Jones toured Japan with Art Blakey (1970), but was largely off record during 1966-1975. However, starting in 1976, Etta Jones (an appealing interpreter of standards, ballads, and blues) began recording regularly for Muse, often with the fine tenor saxophonist Houston Person. She died from complications of cancer on October 16, 2001, the day her last album, Etta Jones Sings Lady Day, was released. ~ Scott Yanow & Ron Wynn

She is unparalleled in my book...... I had the chance to see her in Rochester, NY a few years before she passed..... Didn't go.... So sad now that I didn't..... I put her name on Pandora and it cycles through a number of the amazing diva's of that 20th century.... It never fails that when she comes on, it is obvious to my ears that she is simply the best female vocalist.... ever

Shades of Billie Holiday, Dinah Washington, and Sarah Vaughan all rolled into one unique and incredible voice. So glad I stumbled across this vastly underrated talent.

I grew up on country and rock. It wasn't until I started taking vocal lessons as a part of my Adventure List formally called the bucket list that I discovered Ms. Etta Jones. Little did I know until then I had often listened and sang her songs. I have found a renewed love for her voice and spirit that fills her music. Thank you Ms. Etta for touching my heart. Jerrie

I had the pleasure of meeting Etta backstage before a show she did with Houston Person in Rochester, NY at the School of the Arts. She reminded me of my mom when she was in her later years. Very happy and gracious and pleasant. She sounded great and made a great team with Houston and his band. We are fortunate to have had such a fine lady singing beautifully for us for so long. When I listen to her recordings, I feel her spirit in the music and it makes me very happy.

sorry etta james was the substance abuser and etta jones was not ...etta james is ill these days..she was a good woman and singer who fell victim to the nonsense and degradation of drugs. and I think by the time she knew it was making her sick it was too late. she has been ill off an on for years.

I loved all these comments...t h e 2 etta's were/are legends..one was jazz and one was r&b/rock&rol l / b l u e s and etta james was not a substance abuser! she and houston were clean jazz people. He is still touring at age 80 I think!
