The Mimi Jones Band

Media Title

When jazz bassist Mimi Jones founded the group Jazz Sabroson in 2003, it’s safe to assume she didn’t think the act would take her to international stages on behalf of the United States government. And yet, within three years, she and co-founder/drummer Antonio De Vivo found themselves commissioned by the Kennedy Center and Department of State to participate in an exchange program, performing and educating in Brazil, Uruguay, Ecuador, Barbados, Jamaica, Nevis and the Dominican Republic—and later in the Democratic Republic of the Congo, Mali, Mauritania, Morocco and Algeria.

Since then, Jones has shared stages with a ton of big names in the jazz world and begun releasing solo albums, all while dedicating her time to nonprofits in her home city of New York. Her sound  manages to be super easy-listening without the hint of elevator or CVS overture potential. A multi-instrumentalist, she says she takes elements of rock, jazz, blues and world music in her solo work.

Still not convinced? Then hear this: Those of you looking to class up your lifestyle—for at least just one night—should continue reading. Jones’ performance is not just at the Ethical Society of Philadelphia, but presented in accordance with the Women Producers Guild and Jazz on the Square.  / Randy LoBasso
