Salena Jones is one of the Great Jazz Singers still recording. It is an opinion shared by numerous musicians, singers and Jazz aficionados.  Those who were fortunate enough to have seen Salena in concerts and cabaret or heard her numerous recordings, including her first recording for JAY: SALENA JONES ON BROADWAY / ONLY LOVE (JAY 1330) would have already experienced the `smooth and velvety' quality of this lady’s singing and her unique interpretations. 

This collection of songs, taken mostly from the movies and a couple of personal favorites (they should have been movie songs anyway), continue to illustrate the range as well as the emotional depth of Salena's singing.  Her pitch and enunciation are flawless and the beauty of her voice commands attention from the first to the last note of each song.

Salena has been compared by many to Nancy Wilson and indeed for anyone who loves Nancy Wilson, will love Salena Jones.

Salena’s musical biography includes many distinguished musicians and band leaders with whom she has performed or recorded with – Cab Calloway, King Curtis, Louis Armstrong, Buck Pizzarelli, Count Basie Orchestra, John Lee Hooker, Duke Ellington, Sarah Vaughan, Maynard Ferguson, Art Farmer, Dudley Moore, Richie Cole, Guy Barker, Brook Benton and many more.
