Get ready to put your (jazz) hands together for Tameca Jones!
Coined the “Tina Turner of Jazz,” due to her long legs, fierce hair, and aggressive vocal stylings, Tameca Jones has become a staple in Austin for her unique and soulful spin on covers and her potpourri of jazz, blues, rock, and soul. Since 2008, Jones has opened for the likes of Gary Clark Jr., BB King, and Smokey Robinson and in 2010 she won a prestigious contest that allowed her to open for Jill Scott, Anthony Hamilton, and Mint Condition.
You can expect to hear refreshing takes on a wide range of artists – from Nirvana and Jimi Hendrix to Talking Heads and Bob Marley – at Jones’ live shows which often take place at The Elephant Room, Z Tejas, Central Market, One World Theatre, One2One Bar and the Continental Club Gallery.
You can check out Tameca Jones on Saturday, September 5th at The Parish and you can stream her right here at KUTX!
