A MASTERPIECE project so grab this one now! We give it 2 thumbs up waaaay up!
— Jeff Moses, WJMX-DB Smooth Jazz Boston
An album of all original music is always worth scrutiny and on closer inspection ‘Secrets’ by sax-man Doug Jones reveals itself to be a tight collection of contemporary jazz tracks that Doug writes, arranges and produces in impressive style.
— Dennis Poole, Smooth Jazz Therapy
True artists can make you feel what they feel almost effortlessly. Jones is such an artist. He’s a house on fire, I’m here to tell ya.
— Ronald Jackson, The Smooth Jazz Ride
While the title Secrets lets expect something mysterious, the song is actually the stage for Doug’s incredible talent show.
— Hans-Bernd Halsmann, Smooth and Soul
Saxman Doug Jones is a veteran of contemporary jazz having honed his skills through the years playing with some of Connecticut’s best musicians and opening for many national acts too. That experience shines on Jones’ newest CD “ Top Down”. ‘Top Down’ showcases Doug’s skills as a crafty composer and arranger as well as a multi-dimensional player. The track Almost Summer is instantly catchy and will be a well-defined single that you can savor. Walking with Jack is a sentimental favorite, combining some old school jazz and blues licks with Jones unsung skills on harmonica and flute. No matter which tune you spin, it’s nothing but the ‘Top Down’ on this CD!
