Oneida Jones

She is a mistress of the almighty groove! Bassist, singer, composer, recording artist, bandleader, side-woman, arranger, producer, educator, author (Groove Mastery – Hal Leonard Publishing), session ace …I’m running out of titles to describe Oneida James! She anchored what was to my ears one of Joe Cocker’s finest ensembles for over a decade, as captured on the Fire It Up: Live In Cologne collection - check out "Keep Your Eye on the Prize"

A virtuoso pocket / melodic player who excels with extended range, if I list just half of her credits I’m liable to break the internet!
