Now celebrating over ten years as a full time vocalist-leader, Carolyn Lee Jones burst onto the jazz scene in November 2008. This is Jones’ “second act” after a long and successful career, travelling the world as a buyer for luxury retailers. She always wanted to sing professionally and has proven that you can do anything if you really want it!
Since launching her music career, Carolyn has recorded and released three studio albums, her first in 2008, Bon Appetit, featuring the late Bob Dorough. This was followed by: The Performer in 2013, In A Long White Room in 2016 and now her newest and fourth release on 09/15/2019 CLOSE YOUR EYES. From Jazz Times to Amazon the reviewers have stated that Jones’ sound is sensual, intimate and silky.
In 2017, she was honoured as Cabaret Artist of the Year by Dallas’ premier arts organization, the Sammons Center For The Arts, where she performs frequently.
Home based in Dallas, Texas, she entertains with her musicians as Carolyn Lee Jones & Fresh Vintage Jazz Ensemble. Her eclectic repertoire of classic jazz standards, retro pop tunes with a jazz twist or experiencing her intimate cabaret-jazz shows, she embraces the music with style, sophistication and panache!
