Cameron Jones is a guitarist, composer, festival director and educator. With his Selmer-style guitar, he harnesses the vibrancy of authentic manouche jazz. He uses percussive guitar rhythms to complement bright, expressive melodies

Regular pilgrimages across Europe saw Jones returning to the source of the genre. There, he traced the footsteps of jazz legend Django Reinhardt. It earned him the finest training any manouche guitarist could hope for: mentorship from the late Reinhardt’s family and friends. 

The result is a rare depth of authenticity that Jones brings to his repertoire in Australia. He introduces songs with tales of original time and place. In the true spirit of gypsy jazz, nothing about Jones’ performances is repetitive. Audiences listen in anticipation as he follows each piece in the moment. It’s dangerously spontaneous.

'I am most impressed with his understanding and execution of the Gypsy Swing style.’

Hank B Marvin | Lead guitarist for The Shadows
