Alan Jones’s Social Music aims to create a refreshing atmosphere of relaxed comradery, with music that is accessible and engaging for audiences.

With Pacific Northwest roots, Alan Jones has enjoyed a rich performing career both in Portland and across Europe. Beginning his touring career at just sixteen years old with Amsterdam-based organist Count Dutch, Jones has performed or recorded with local legends such as Jim Pepper and Ralph Towner and international phenomena like Kenny Wheeler and Lee Konitz. His own band, the Alan Jones Sextet, has recorded four albums and performs in Portland regularly.

In addition to maintaining a steady performing career, Jones has established himself as one of Portland’s premier jazz educators. Established 2007, the Alan Jones Academy of Music has gained a reputation of producing excellent musicians. Jones has pioneered a movement to make live music more accessible.
