Lee Jones is a British jazz guitarist and composer, combining influences from modern jazz, fusion, blues, avant-garde and rock styles. Lee has regularly performed throughout the UK scene and recorded/performed/studied alongside Larry Coryell, Martin Taylor and Mike Stern. Since graduating from the Royal Birmingham Conservatoire Jazz Course in 2007, he has released seven solo albums with former WEA producer Simon Tittley and in 2019 completed a PhD in music composition at the University of Salford, Manchester. Lee is currently touring Australia and also active within music education/research. Lee released his latest solo guitar project, A World Away, in late 2023.

Tonight, Lee will be reuniting a very special quartet honouring leading giants of jazz guitar including Barney Kessel and Wes Montgomery. Following their previous JazzLab debut and a sold-out return visit to the UK in 2024, tonight’s lineup will be performing a range of diverse repertoire from classic albums including Boss Guitar, Smokin’ at the Halfnote and Jellybeans with a soulful, blues-inflected passion.
