Audiences of all ages are invited to spend an afternoon with Jack Jones, hailed by Frank Sinatra as "One of America's Greatest Singers of Our Time" when he appears LIVE IN CONCERT at the Edgerton Center for the Performing Arts on the campus of Sacred Heart University in Fairfield, Connecticut on Sunday, March 16 at 3pm.
Jack Jones, with a disarming smile, an effortlessly engaging wit and a vocal style that stands alone, is one of America's greatest singers ranking with the legendary Mel Tormé, Tony Bennett, Frank Sinatra and Vic Damone. Acknowledged as 'A true singer's singer,' Jones, whose career has spanned more than 50 years, performs around the globe to sold-out audiences in venues ranging from intimate jazz clubs to the London Palladium with musical perfection, vocal passion, phenomenal breath control and impeccable phrasing.
Jones' respect for songs that tell stories with meaning and beauty has led him to record works by the greatest balladeers of all time: Sammy Cahn, Jimmy Van Heusen, Cole Porter, the Gershwin's, Harold Arlen, Michel Legrand and Alan & Marilyn Bergman. He was inspired by such great jazz instrumentalists as Gerry Mulligan, Clark Terry, Buddy Rich, Bob Brookmeyer, Dave Pell Octet, Marty Paiche Dectet, Shorty Rogers and the Giants and Count Basie.
