Percy Jones

Fretless pioneer Percy Jones’ resume reads like an encyclopedia of innovation!

Self-taught and greatly inspired by Charles Mingus and British and American rhythm and blues, Jones plies his craft with a mesmerizing repertoire of glissandos, harmonics, and three-finger riffage, among other techniques, in his work as a jazz-fusion, prog-rock master.

A composer, arranger, sideman, collaborator, multi-instrumentalist, and solo recording artist, Percy anchored several seminal sides, most notably as a member of Brand X, and with Brian Eno, Roy Harper, Steve Hackett, David Sylvian, and Tunnels to cite a very select few.
