The Jones Factor, a 10 piece little big band, was formed in 1986 by trombonist and bandleader John Fumasoli. Looking for something smaller than a big band, and larger than his trombone septet, Fumasoli decided to embark on a project that can best be described as “front burner/back burner” with the instrumentation of a pared down big band and the addition of French horn.
The players in this dynamic ensemble have extreme musical diversity and are equally at home playing a multitude of styles. A small selection of their credits include: The Village Vanguard Orchestra, Woody Herman Orchestra, Gerry Mulligan, Roland Vasquez, Rufus Reid, Grady Tate, Randy Brecker, Kenwood Dennard, Donald Harrison, Nancy Wilson, B.B. King, Dianne Reeves,Tito Puente, Bill Evans, Jean Luc-Ponty, Kenny Garrett, Tony Bennett,
