Busta Jones

Back in the late 1970s – early 80s, the late Busta “Cherry” Jones was everywhere, plying funk fueled lines with a mastery of rhythm, space, harmony and a thick fat tone.

A showman, composer, solo recording artist, in-demand sideman, and collaborator; Mr. Jones distinguished himself on several seminal sides of his era including My Life in the Bush of Ghosts (1981) and The Name of this Band is Talking Heads (1982), among others.

He followed Andy Fraser in Sharks, anchored a killer live trio platter with Chris Spedding (Friday the 13th); and worked with Gang of Four, Eno, Robert Fripp, and The Ramones, to cite a select few.
